Global Health Solutions
At UNC Gillings we work collaboratively with local and regional partners and around the world to seek transformative solutions to improve global health. As part of these efforts, the Gillings School’s Research, Innovation and Global Solutions promotes and advances the School’s global health activities in research, service, practice and teaching through partnerships, internships, outreach and communications.
Our activities include:
- Overseeing the Residential Graduate Certificate in Global Health;
- Administering funded global internships;
- Co-producing Public Health Behind the Scenes– a new podcast featuring stories about the people who are making a difference in the world; and
- Collaborating across the School on strategic global partnerships.
Students gain individualized, mentored and hands-on learning experience through field experiences. Here is a collection of helpful information and tips on how to find a global practicum.
Research is part of our culture at the Gillings School, and many of those projects have a global purview in more than 80 countries. Check out some of the most recent research.
