GHT Application Process 

Eighteen MS1 students and two CHA/PA students per year will be selected through a formal admissions process for the Global Health Track (GHT) per year. The GHT is best suited for highly motivated, adventurous students who have demonstrated leadership skills, adaptability to new situations, and superior critical thinking skills. Students with experience working with other cultures and with a well-conceived, thoughtful plan for incorporating global health into future career endeavors are preferred. However, it is NOT necessary to have ANY global health or travel experience for admission to the track. 

First-year medical students interested in applying to the GHT must complete the following:

  • Register and pass IDPT 5200: Introduction to Global Health. Students may register during the open enrollment period in late August.
  • Submit a completed application form and curriculum vitae. The application deadline for AY23-24 is Wednesday, September 6, 2023.
  • Please refer to the GHT Application for more information on how to apply to the GHT. The window for accepting applications for the class of 2027 has not yet opened.
