Global Health Efforts at Yale
Elizabeth Bradley is the faculty director for the Global Health Initiative and the Global Health Leadership Institute, both of which are at Yale. She is also a professor of public health at Yale's School of Public Health. Professor Bradley's research focuses on health delivery systems and quality improvement and has contributed important findings about organizational change and quality of care within the hospital, nursing home, and hospice settings. She has been involved with several projects that aim to strengthen health systems in international settings, including China, Ethiopia, Liberia, South Africa and the United Kingdom. We talk with Professor Bradley about the global health efforts at Yale, as well as some of her recent work as a recipient of a Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation grant.
The multidisciplinary approach of the Global Health Concentration encourages creativity and innovation, while fostering a global perspective. The concentration emphasizes an integrative problem–solving approach to global health issues and to diseases and conditions that afflict developing and developed countries. Students who complete this concentration will be well prepared for positions in a variety of organizations—public and private, national, bilateral and multilateral—dedicated to global health challenges.
M.P.H. students in our traditional two–year program may complete this concentration while they satisfy the requirements of their respective departments or programs. Students in the one–year Advanced Professional M.P.H. Program may enroll in a Global Health Track.
