Students in the Collaborative Specialization in Global Health (U of T Global Scholar) program look at global health from a multidisciplinary approach. Through seminars, practicums, co-curricular events, as well as engagement with peers and faculty, students continue to develop their understanding of global health. They also contribute and grow the global health community through their own research and work, some of which can be found below.
