100% of funds raised will be used to support students from international partner institutions to study global health through activities such as clinical electives, lab training rotations, research rotations, the Global Health course, and Public Health Institutes at the University of Minnesota.
Why is is global health equity important to the U of M? Scores of University of Minnesota health science students have been extremely fortunate to be hosted by our international partners around the world to gain experience in global health through clinical rotations, research rotations, and community health field placements. CGHSR, as an interdisciplinary center supporting global health activities, is leading the effort to make global health learning more equitable by providing financial support to students at strategic partner institutions in low-to-middle income countries so they can participate in short-term training and learning at the U of M.
