Global Health Program


Our Department

Welcome to the Global Health Program at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine. Global health is a major moral movement of our time. Many health science students will explore global health opportunities during their training, either as a part of their curriculum or independently. As an academic pursuit, global health utilizes both the empirical methods of the sciences, as well as the critical, speculative and historical methods of the humanities. Thus, global health is intensely inter-disciplinary. If you have any questions whether the listed opportunities, events or courses are available to you, please don’t hesitate to contact us.



UMKC Health and Life Science’s mission is to establish a global presence by providing opportunities in global health care education that include teaching, learning, research, cultural programming, and professional exchanges both incoming and abroad.
