About the Specialization
The Collaborative Specialization in Global Health (CSGH) is designed to deepen the knowledge base of doctoral and masters students about multidisciplinary approaches to global health issues and challenges; to provide career training related to global health research and practice; and to help students develop research and practical skills. The CSGH views ‘global health’ in an integrative manner, focusing on the relationship among local, regional, national, and international forces that influence health and equity, as well as on the development, implementation and evaluation of interventions and policies.
The CSGH integrates methods and insights from Departments and Faculties across U of T. Students are encouraged to think critically about global health paradigms and to integrate academic research skills in an applied setting. Graduates of the program will be exposed to global health approaches from a variety of disciplines including public health, engineering, anthropology, rehabilitation sciences, business, nursing, and law.
