Global Health  


At Stanford, many of our faculty are involved in both local and global health projects. To view a list of faculty's projects organized by region and country, please visit »

The Center for Innovation in Global Health (CIGH) encourages faculty to get involved in global health activities both locally and globally. There are many ways in which faculty can take advantage of our programs:

Faculty can serve as mentors to medical students and residents who are involved in a research or clinical project abroad or locally. For more information, please contact Dr. Brian Blackburn.

As a faculty member at Stanford, the opportunity to travel as a career physician with the Johnson & Johnson Global Health Scholars program is available for six weeks with a competitive stipend that includes airfare, housing and meals. Please visit the website to learn more about the established rotation sites and how to apply.

There are multiple opportunities for support and funding for faculty interested in perusing clinical and research experiences abroad. The CIGH does not directly oversee or coordinate these programs, however the Center is happy to provide mentorship through the application process for the above programs.

The interest group provides a forum for Stanford to present their current projects to the group and answer any questions. We keep record of minutes and presentations which are available to the members of this group via intranet.

Seminar series include a case-based tropical medicine course that prepares scholars for clinical experiences in low-resource settings as well as a seminar series on the impact of multinationals on global health which includes a line-up of speakers who will discuss their experiences of how the multinationals they are invovled in have impacted global health.
