University of Toronto International Health Program

UTIHP was established in 1988 as a student group by two University of Toronto medical students, in response to an increased interest in Global Health. Since then, the identity of the group has been constantly evolving. The interdisciplinary aspect of the program was introduced at a later point to open the program to individuals from different disciplines and maximize program effectiveness. This was accomplished through sharing leadership between a Medical and an Interdisciplinary Co-director, in addition to having executive positions and membership open to all members of the UofT community including undergraduates, graduates, alumni, as well as professional students.
