Our programs expose students to high-quality, evidence-based, interdisciplinary clinical and public health care under the resource constraints typically found in developing nations.
Participants then apply this medical knowledge to health care situations around the world, learning from colleagues and experts abroad in the fields of clinical tropical medicine, nutrition and public health.
These equal partnerships are aimed at promoting health equity here and abroad through the shared development of best practices. Students involved in these programs return better prepared to provide care to patients and communities in Arizona and the Southwest border region, elsewhere in the US, or globally.
