Global Medicine Program

The Global Medicine Program was founded in 2011 as a joint initiative of MGH Global Health and the Department of Medicine. Aligned with the 4 pillars of MGH’s mission—patient care, research, education, and community service—MGH Global Medicine seeks to train leaders to respond to the distress of our global neighbors. The Global Medicine program invests in innovative curricula and mutually rewarding partnerships to create trainee service, teaching, and research opportunities, both locally and globally. With a focus on integrating the principles and practices of global health and care for vulnerable populations, this program develops future leaders to advance health equity and strengthen health systems.

Global Medicine Objectives

  • Develop future leaders to advance health equity;
  • Build meaningful partnerships; and
  • Impact the health of communities, both locally and globally.
