The Office of Global Health has updated programs and support systems to facilitate the development and implementation of Global Health clinical, research, and educational projects.

Do you have a foreign project or are you planning to start one?

If so, please review our Foreign Project Policy and complete a Foreign Project Registration Form. Completion of this form registers your project with the Office of Global Health and allows the institution to provide the administrative, financial and/or legal support that is critical to the success of your project. It will also allow interested collaborators, trainees and students to contact you through our Global Health Project Database. Foreign Project Registration Forms must be submitted at the time of extramural grant applications and a minimum of 30 days prior to the project start date. Foreign Projects must be approved by Office of Global Health and the International Project Administration Task Force prior to project initiation.

Are you planning to travel internationally in 2012?
