Learning lies at the heart of the Global Health Institute at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

From undergraduates to health practitioners, students choose global health education. Expanding their worldview. Delving into complex determinants of health and disease. Collaborating and engaging communities large and small—and finding new pathways to well-being.

They earn Certificates in Global Health, complete international clerkships, participate in field experiences. They are Badgers becoming citizens of the world.
