Ohio State recognizes the importance of global health experiences for the growth and education of future physicians.  

The College of Medicine’s Office of Global Health Education serves as a resource for Ohio State medical students, faculty and staff interested in global health issues and opportunities. Ohio State provides funding and course credit to make it easier to experience international clinical and public health rotations.

As we set goals for 2020 and beyond, we have plans in place for exploratory and educational trips to Rwanda, Malawi and Tanzania. Our goal is to offer students outstanding educational experiences in a safe and secure environment. Additionally, the Office of Global Health continues to travel to underserved countries around the world to meet with Ministers of Health, educators, local support teams and hospital officials to explore potential new sites for our students to learn and help provide care.
