The School of Medicine is committed to building sustainable partnerships and learning opportunities for our students and communities here and abroad. As part of this focus, several initiatives have been implemented. Those include the Health Equity and Justice Curriculum, the Global Health Advocacy Explore and a new intentional streamlined process for Global Health learning and partnerships.
