Global Public Health at Drexel Dornsife

The Office of Global Health within Drexel University's Dornsife School of Public Health—the #1 School of Public Health in Philadelphia—educates and trains new leaders, scholars, and researchers to address current and emerging global public health issues facing the world today.

The Office of Global Health encourages undergraduate and graduate students at Drexel to take advantage of learning opportunities, academic and public health practice partnerships, training programs, and field experiences to address global public health issues in key regions, such as Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America, the Caribbean Islands, and also underserved communities within the United States.

Global Public Health Mission and Goals

Drexel Dornsife's Office of Global Health is dedicated to building a cadre of practitioners and scientists who approach health program planning and scientific questions from a multidisciplinary and entrepreneurial perspective.

We place priority on strengthening public health systems and the public health workforce globally and locally. We work closely with ministries of health, NGOs, academic institutions and low- and middle-income country partners to develop mutually beneficial capacity building, training, and research collaborations.
