McGill University Global Health Programs

McGill University Global Health Programs is a strong component of one of Canada’s best-known institutions of higher learning and one of the leading universities in the world. With students coming from some 150 countries, McGill's student body is the most internationally diverse of any research-intensive university in Canada. McGill has two campuses, 10 faculties, some 300 programs of study and 40,000 students. McGill also partners with four affiliated teaching hospitals to graduate over 1,000 health care professionals each year.

Students and faculty are increasingly interested in global health and the many ways perceive themselves to be global citizens. What better place to nurture this desire than within a university setting? Global Health Programs unites the necessary people and serves as an overarching organization to coordinate, unify, and strategically plan the work of diverse global health groups and researchers at McGill. The GHP infrastructure provides tools, resources, and support to allow student and faculty to succeed in their local and international global health initiatives.

Says McGill in a statement: "[As] a new partner to the Consortium (and the first Canadian university) we are excited about adding this dimension to our offerings in global health. The partnership with the Pulitzer Center allows us to offer training and workshops on communication, reporting, telling your story and improving how our students and faculty share their work and experience. The new student Fellow position creates an entirely new opportunity for McGill students, and we can’t wait to begin in 2018."
