Global Health

Georgetown University’s schools, departments, and programs address global health challenges through innovative scholarship, teaching, and outreach.

Faculty across three campuses—the Medical Center, Main Campus, and the Law Center—explore international health issues in their scientific, legal, policy, and ethical dimensions. As a Jesuit university with a strong international presence and outlook, Georgetown approaches global health in a spirit of service to the wider world. Students in our undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs benefit from close interaction with world-class faculty and proximity to the World Bank, USAID, and other international and national institutions active in the global health field. In April 2017, Georgetown launched a Global Health Initiative, a university-wide platform for supporting research, teaching, and service in global health.
