Education Overview - Undergraduates

Over the past decade interest in Global Health has surged across college campuses, becoming an essential component of premier academic institutions. The Center for Innovation in Global Health (CIGH) aims to provide undergraduate students with opportunities to achieve a well-rounded experience at Stanford that incorporates an understanding of the global environment we live in.

The CIGH works to co-sponsor courses, provide international outreach opportunities and aid in identifying research projects to those interested.  At Stanford, we believe in mentored relationships between faculty and students and strive to better educate students through learning tools other than those just in the classroom.

Our educational offerings for undergraduate students include:

There are multiple opportunities for support and funding for students interested in pursuing clinical and research experiences abroad. The CIGH does not directly oversee or coordinate these programs, however the Office is happy to mentor students through the application process for the above programs.

There are multiple global health and public health courses offered by the university. Please check out those that are of interest to you.
