The Stanford University Center for Innovation in Global Health (CIGH) strives to enable collaborative programs in global health for residents, medical students, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and undergraduates by reaching across geographic, cultural, economic, and gender boundaries to inspire a new generation of global health leaders. CIGH creates partnered programs that build capacity both overseas and in the United States in underserved, low resource communities.

CIGH supports research, education, and mentorship opportunities in global health. It has developed and led a variety of global collaborations, such as the Medical Education Partnership Initiative (MEPI) with the University of Zimbabwe, the Yale/Stanford Johnson & Johnson Global Health Scholar Program, and the Fogarty Global Health Equity Scholars.

CIGH also serves as a resource to connect interested global health scholars to opportunities at Stanford University and beyond.


Stanford University's global health programs within The Center for Innovation in Global Health are dedicated to understanding and reducing health disparities and strengthening human capital.
