Developing a curriculum to train medical students and researchers to address and improve health equity in Wisconsin and globally
Return to Listing
Over the past decade, interest in global health among undergraduate and graduate students has reached record levels. While student interest may stem from generations of global connectivity, global health educators also now recognize that the skills that characterize good practice in a low- to middle-income country are appropriate when working with vulnerable populations domestically. Students in Wisconsin preparing to be clinicians or population and public health researchers must learn skills to understand, engage, and lead across cultures right here in Wisconsin or globally.
Through this award, the Medical College of Wisconsin will develop an MS Program in Global Health Equity to provide an integrative learning experience that will attract and train future medical students and researchers in improving health equity while building skills that can impact the health of Wisconsin residents.
Provided hands-on learning opportunities to train the next generation of global health leaders with students completing global health internships in the UK and Rwanda with global partners focusing on nutrition, mental health, global healthcare systems, and emergency medicine
Collaborated with partner organizations in Wisconsin to offer opportunities for students to become an integral part of Wisconsin's healthcare system and provide services for years to come
Developed new courses and integrated student feedback to improve future course offerings
Continued to seek opportunities to expand partnerships and strengthen relationships with rural and tribal communities
