DGHI provides opportunities for medical students to better understand the depth, breadth and interdisciplinary nature of global health challenges. Programs like the Second Year Health Policy and Global Health weeklong course, the Third Year Global Health Study Program and the Doris Duke International Clinical Research Fellowship put you at the center of the action.

After medical school, the Global Health Residency/Fellowship Pathway delivers tailored postgraduate training experiences integrating specialty-specific research opportunities, masters-level didactic training, and close mentorship to develop your career in global health.
