Following their experiences with the Global Health Program at Cornell, our alumni go on to engage in a wide variety of disciplines and careers related to global and public health. Many of our students pursue further education, whether that be to obtain a Master of Public Health, a Medical Degree, or a Law Degree. Others move directly into the realms of research, non-profit work, teaching, or the Peace Corps.

Alumni actively support the Cornell Global Health Program (GHP) in many ways.

Some members of our alumni network act as mentors to current undergraduates and judges for the Case Competition. Other Cornell and GHP alumni have created travel grants to support student participation in our Global Health Summer Programs.  We welcome and encourage alumni engagement.  Contact us if you are interested in learning about how to be more involved!

Thanks to all who have helped shape our program into what it is today!

Be proactive in building strong relationships with your mentors, sponsors, peers, colleagues; mentor and empower others as you progress in your career; be open to exploring differences and digging into conflict to learn from others; commit to creating diverse and inclusive spaces in your work/school/etc.

The [Global Health] minor equipped me with the foundational skills I needed to be intentional about pursuing a career in global health that was fulfilling, sustainable and right for me.
