Campus Initiatives

Commitment to global health is pervasive at both Yale School of Public Health (YSPH) and the greater university. Faculty and students across different YSPH departments are actively involved in projects that impact health worldwide in areas such as chronic disease, infectious disease, policy, administration and behavioral science. See below for a list of various initiatives on campus serving global health and other international needs.

Yale Global Health Studies Program 

The Global Health Studies (GHS) program at Yale University is designed for students interested in understanding and addressing pressing global health challenges. Although courses in global health are open to all undergraduates, students desiring greater depth in the field are encouraged to apply to be a Global Health Fellow. Global Health Fellows are generally selected in the fall of their sophomore year, although in exceptional cases juniors may also be accepted.

Global Health Leadership Institute (GHLI) 

A university-wide initiative striving to develop the next generation of global health leaders through innovative educational, training and research programs that strengthen the capacity of communities and countries to ensure health equity and quality of care for all.
