Program Coordinator: Lisa V. Adams, M.D
Program Manager: Anne Sosin
A joint enterprise of the Dickey Center for International Understanding and the Geisel School of Medicine, the Global Health initiative (GHI) marshals the resources of the campus and international partners to address global health concerns. The GHI offers both curricular and co-curricular opportunities for undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students. Current curricular offerings available through GHI are as follows:
- INTS 18/GEOG 2: Global Health and Society (16F, 17W)
- The Global Health Initiative offers a certificate for undergraduate students who fulfill a combination of coursework and a capstone project on a global health topic of their choice. Students awarded a certificate in global health will be able to demonstrate an understanding of research methods in global health, research ethics, and contemporary issues in global health.
Global health internship opportunities are available through GHI and include a changing portfolio of projects with international and domestic partners. All undergraduate, graduate and professional school students are welcome to apply for GHI’s funded opportunities. The Global Health Initiative also supports co-curricular activities in global health including the Global Health Fellows Program and the student organization Dartmouth Coalition for Global Health and Social Equity (DCGH).
