Global Health

The goal of CMS Global Health is to coordinate opportunities for students to serve communities in low- and middle-income countries while learning to identify and remedy health disparities. Global Health educates students about meeting the health needs of the poor in underserved communities with compassion, integrity, high ethical standards, and a high level of competence. We believe the benefits of learning in and about other parts of the world are invaluable. We also believe that honing students’ cross-cultural communication and problem-solving skills will help to improve health care delivery and patient outcomes in the United States.

We have established partnership sites in China, St. Lucia, and Uganda, and our collaboration with Child Family Health International (CFHI) offers students a variety of global health learning experiences at 31 sites in 10 countries.
