Global Health Student Engagement

Global Health Student Engagement


The Global Health Program encourages students to engage directly with the program, and to involve themselves in leadership positions, projects, and organizations that will allow them to continue to pursue studies in the field of global health beyond the classroom. There are numerous opportunities to take on a larger role within the Global Health Program, and students are encouraged to do so. 

The Global Health Student Advisory Board allows students to assume a leadership role, and to continue the development, expansion, and advancement of the Global Health Program through additional programming and special projects like the Cornell Global Health Case Competition.

Program Assistants play an active role in peer facilitation, and are involved with the program through TA-ships to lead the Pre-Departure Seminars in the Spring semester for each Global Health Summer Program. They may also travel with the student cohort to assist with the abroad program.

There are also opportunities for mentorship from alumni of the Global Health Program through the Global Health & Development Alumni Mentorship Program, where students are paired with an alumni mentor who has similar interests and/or pursued a career path of interest.
