Global health promotion aims to improve the health of both local and international communities, focusing on key issues such as ecohealth and marginalized populations. Through advocacy, education, and research, we can strive to eliminate health disparities around the globe and achieve equality of health care. The Office of Global Health embodies these values with the involvement of faculty members and various health organizations around the world.
Our Office was established in 2009 with the goal of providing Schulich medical students and residents with opportunities, support and funding for global health initiatives. We are committed to ensuring the full preparation of international elective participants with a comprehensive pre-departure training that encourages cultural competency and personal security. In addition, we collaborate with and support our partner institutions in the development of global health programs. We invite you to explore this website, as it contains crucial information on opportunities for participation in global health promotion.
