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. Information for specific groups of students can be found in the links below and a variety of global health resources, including digital modules, educational resources, and international travel considerations for health, safety and culture, can be found on our student Global Health Resources page (VUnetID login required).
