The Center for Global Health integrates global health education programming and faculty research initiatives within Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine and encourages students, residents and fellows at Feinberg to engage in global health in a meaningful way via research projects, supervised clinical rotations, and public health projects. Our medical trainees are able to visit both affiliated and unaffiliated universities, health clinics, and international non-government organizations (INGOs) around the world and are eligible to apply for stipends to support their travel and elective and research credit. Global health training opportunities provide medical trainees invaluable lessons relating to health equity, ethics, cultural competency, community service, among others.
