The Center for Global Health
The Center for Global Health (CGH) is an office serving the entire Penn network (faculty, medical students, students in other undergraduate or graduate degree programs) with regards to global health opportunities. Their office is located at 240 John Morgan Building, and they always welcome drop-ins.
For Penn Med students, the CGH provides information and support on the Global Health Certificate and funding for travel abroad. They also maintain a running list of global health themed courses, year-out opportunities, clinical rotations, etc. that are available to medical students.
