GHT Admissions


Become a part of the Global Health Track

Application Process

Eighteen MS1 students and two CHA/PA students per year will be selected through a formal admissions process for the Global Health Track (GHT) per year. The GHT is best suited for highly motivated, adventurous students who have demonstrated leadership skills, adaptability to new situations, and superior critical thinking skills. Students with experience working with other cultures and with a well-conceived, thoughtful plan for incorporating global health into future career endeavors are preferred. However, it is NOT necessary to have ANY global health or travel experience for admission to the track. 

Please refer to the Track Application Letter and Track Options documents for more information.

First year medical students interested in applying to the GHT must complete the following:
  1. Register and pass IDPT 6665: Introduction to Global Health (Wednesdays 1-3 pm after the Human Body Block). Students may register during the open enrollment period in early September.
  2. Submit a completed
    ​form​ and curriculum vitae
    (application deadline for 2017 is September 11). You will be notified of your track acceptance the week of October 3.
​                  PLEASE NOTE: You will be able to save and continue the application as long as you are using the                     same device and browser as when you began the application. At the end of the survey you will be                   redirected to a new site for your CV/resume upload, so please make sure you have that available                    when you are ready to submit.
