Improving health and reducing inequities worldwide


Transforming Health Education Globally: Four Years After

Some of the biggest names in the field of global health came to UCSF on September 9, 2011 to discuss how to work together to improve the education of health professionals in the United States and around the world. The event provided an opportunity to reflect on the progress and the growing potential of initiatives conceived at the September 2007 Global Health Sustainability: Focusing on the Workforce symposium held at UCSF. Central to the discussions were the accomplishments and opportunities linked to the creation of the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH) and the Commission on the Education of Health Professionals for the 21st Century.
