Global Health Pathway
The Office of Undergraduate Medical Education is excited to introduce the new Global Health Pathway. This pathway is open to all UMass first- year medical students who are interested in pursuing a four-year curriculum that will prepare them for cultural, clinical and research experiences with underserved populations both in the U.S. and around the globe.
The Global Health Pathway (GHP) is a four-year curriculum for highly motivated UMass Medical School (UMMS) who choose to gain additional curriculum and experiences in global health during their medical school training. Students in the GHP will have the opportunity to explore cultural, public health, clinical and research aspects of global health, with a focus on underserved populations living both in the U.S. and around the globe.
This pathway is open to all UMMS first-year medical students, and applications for the GHP are accepted from interested first-year UMMS students during the fall semester.
While most students in the GHP will choose to focus on underserved populations outside of the U.S., some GHP students may choose to focus on underserved populations in the U.S. such as immigrants and refugees who are living in the U.S. or Native American populations.
