The Institute for Global Health & Infectious Diseases is committed to preparing the next generation of leaders to tackle the most pressing challenges in global health. We recognize that this requires exposure and training in a variety of disciplinary perspectives in order to understand the social, historical, political, economic, and biomedical determinants.
We strive to expand the global health curriculum across UNC-Chapel Hill in order to expose undergraduate and graduate students not only to critical, contemporary issues in global health, but also to the interdisciplinary framework that is necessary to analyze and address these issues.
From individual courses such as the campus-wide AIDS course and One Health to the Heels in the Field discussion series and Friday Morning Conference, as well as year-long funded fellowships and global residency programs for foreign clinicians, the IGHID is dedicated to global health learning at all levels.
