SPH Student in Uganda

A commitment to global engagement is core to Drexel University’s mission. The Global Public Health Initiative at the School of Public Health was created to provide excellent opportunities for all public health students to gain rich and meaningful experiences working on health issues that transcend national boundries or that may be influenced by circumstances or experiences in other countries. The initiative extends the SPH’s reach through community-based, online and local and international programs. It bolsters Drexel University's historical strength in experiential learning and community collaborative projects.

Students can take advantage of learning opportunities, academic and public health practice partnerships, and field experiences to address global, public health issues in targeted regions, such as:

  • Asia
  • Africa
  • Latin America
  • Europe
  • Underserved communities in the United States
