The Center for Global Health was formed in 2002 as a result of a merger between the Center for International Health and the Division of Geographic Medicine. The new Center is located on the fourth floor of the Biomedical Research Building on the CWRU Medical School Campus in Cleveland, Ohio. The Center provides a coordinating structure to help link the numerous international health resources of the University, its affiliated institutions, and the Northern Ohio community in a multidisciplinary program of research, training and clinical application related to global health. The Center brings together many disciplines at CWRU to make life better in developing countries, and thus functions as a catalyst to stimulating international collaborations throughout the institution.


Training and education

The Center provides training opportunities for both M.D. and Ph.D. candidates, as well as for postdoctoral fellows engaged in either field studies or basic bench research on globally important infectious diseases. Interested candidates looking for doctoral training can apply to the CWRU School of Medicine for entry into the Medical Scientists Training Program (MSTP) that confers the MD/PhD dual degree. Candidates interested in a Ph.D. degree can apply to the Biomedical Scientist Training Program (BSTP). Postdoctoral candidates interested in a specific project are encouraged to apply directly to the Center.
