Why will I LOVE this Program?
This Scholars Program brings together individuals from across the country who are passionate about exploring best practices in improving health outcomes, reducing disparities, and preventing global threats. Students will explore topics that bring together the fields of public health, economics, epidemiology, and medicine through a survey course taught by experts with an array of clinical and research experience. At the end of the course, students will become knowledgeable in global health topics and subsequently, more effective and compassionate physicians.
