Global Health Pathway Director: Daniel DeUgarte, MD
The Global Health Pathway is designed for medical students interested in the wide variety of career possibilities in global health. These career paths include global health research, clinical work in global settings, specialized education and/or training at academic medical centers, and staffing in U.S. government agencies (e.g. CDC, USAID, NIH), multilateral organizations (e.g. United Nations), or philanthropic/nongovernmental organizations (e.g. Gates Foundation). The Global Health Pathway provides opportunities for students to network with colleagues involved in global health, to explore career options in global health, and most importantly, to facilitate longitudinal mentorship and activities with UCLA faculty and global mentors. Graduates of the Global Health Pathway receive a 'Certificate of Completion of the Global Health Pathway'. All Pathway graduates complete a scholarly global health project and participate in other global health experiences/activities throughout medical school; more on the Pathway requirements can be found here. Students are encouraged to join the Global Health Pathway as early as possible and by no later than the fall of their second year.
