Global Health

The world is our classroom, laboratory, and clinic. Penn nurses study and practice in a wide variety of locations and environments from resource-poor communities to the most modern, cutting-edge facilities all over the world. 

Global partners

As a World Health Organization Collaborating Center in Nursing and Midwifery Leadership, we are at the forefront of global health initiatives and policy, and we collaborate with many other institutions around the world in pursuit of better healthcare for all.

Global programs

Our own study abroad programs, Center for Global Women’s Health, and curriculum—including an undergraduate and graduate Global Health minor, all serve to open the door for students and faculty to engage globally. And we complement these programs by bringing international visiting scholars to Penn.

Global perspectives

Our focus on the social determinants of health is leading to better ways to care for a rapidly changing global population. By broadening healthcare perspectives and fostering diversity, our students become prepared to go out and make a difference in patient care wherever they are needed.
