Global Health

Our Global Health programs provide students with the tools needed to save lives and solve public health challenges in communities near and far.

Why Global Health at UMB

Our programs harness the experience and perspective of the University of Maryland Baltimore faculty and students across schools, including law, nursing, medicine, and social work. No other program in the country can bring this level of interprofessional instruction to the teaching of research skills.  Students at the Graduate School are encouraged to join the campus global community and eligible to take part in UMB Center for Global Engagement interprofessional global programs and other global activities.

We prioritize a “global local” approach to global engagement that emphasizes reciprocal and mutually beneficial exchanges with overseas collaborators and breaks down silos between global and local (Baltimore/Maryland/United States) initiatives so that the best ideas can be shared and adapted across borders wherever a need exists. UMB’s global impact, most notably in the areas of global health and vaccine development, and in efforts to improve HIV and malaria diagnosis and treatment, is a source of great pride on campus. With over 40 years of experience engaging with communities around the world to address the most challenging global health concerns of the 20th and 21st centuries, UMB is recognized, particularly on the African continent, as an international global health leader.
