There are many interesting ways to enhance your contact with and knowledge of global health.   Click on the links below to explore. 

Global Health & Tropical Medicine Courses

Students can find courses relevant to global health in almost every one of the twelve undergraduate, graduate, and professional schools at the University of Pennsylvania.  In addition, there are several options available for those interested in tropical medicine. See relevant links to the right.


The Center for Global Health has supported the production of a number of global health-relevant videos/lectures by Penn faculty.  In addition, we regularly add links on this page to important lectures/recordings by outside scholars.  This information should be helpful both for students preparing for global health experiences and those who are looking for greater insight about experiences they have already had.


The Center for Global Health houses a small collection of often compelling and entertaining films with global health relevance.  The entire Penn community is welcome to borrow these films.  To do so, review list on the right and contact Dustin Utt to make pick-up arrangements.
