Leaders in Global Health Education Programs

Welcome to the UF College of Medicine’s Global Health Education Program. Our students and faculty engage with partners at home and abroad to develop physicians who use global health principles to provide excellent patient care with sensitivity to the social determinants of health.


We are currently monitoring the impact of the COVID19 upon our program and our partners to assure safety for all participants. The local global health equity pathway and all electives will operate in accordance with UF College of Medicine guidelines. All travel will be reviewed in accordance with University policy.


The Global Health Education Program aims to cultivate the global health physician using a step-wise approach to introduce students to health equity.

Global Health Foundations

Students will receive introduction to global health through participation in classroom and service learning activities.

Global Health Implementation

Students will further their understanding and discover global health skills through practical learning experiences.

Global Health Practice

Students interested in pursuit of careers in Global Health may apply the skills they have learned in Foundations and Implementation through local and global health equity focused electives in the fourth year.
