About Us

Holding a globe in hands

The role of the Internationalization Office is to oversee, facilitate, coordinate and promote the international activities and initiatives for the School by cultivating global and inter-cultural partnerships with individuals and organizations that enhance our education, research, and clinical care.


Internationalization increasingly impacts the core academic, research and service mission of Western University and the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry. Global communications, economic, social, research, scientific and health-care interdependence and international co-operation have made our engagement at the international level a prerequisite and a responsibility for our success. These trends have brought about changes in how we teach, who we teach, where we teach as well as the nature and focus of our research and scholarship. International education and research are tied closely to the strategic goals of the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry.
