Global Medicine and Social Justice

quote “I’m a better physician and person thanks to the passion of my medical school friends, who are dedicated to creating a more just world through medicine.”

As health care providers, we believe that working towards equity in health and increasing access to health care is as much our responsibility as the treatment of disease. Graduates of our program are skilled physicians who understand that the determinants of health are global. We aim to have a real impact as medical practitioners attuned to social justice.
