VU Students and Trainees

Global health has become an inextricable component of modern-day medical, public health, and nursing practices. There are increasing demands for health professionals who can function competently in a global marketplace, who have research or service interests in health problems of developing countries, or who wish to address global manpower inequities through training or service. Coupled with a rising tide of global health interest across academic, business, and government sectors, there is an urgent need to expand opportunities for education and training in global health.
