The Office of Global Health Education (OGHE) is one of several global health initiatives taking place at Weill Cornell. OGHE's primary function is to oversee the Global Health Curriculum, a longitudinal, elective global health program for Weill Cornell medical students.
The Center for Global Health, housed in the Department of Medicine, represents Weill Cornell Medical College and Cornell University in the NIH Global Health Network. Its long-standing work in Haiti, Brazil, and Tanzania now includes a Resident education component.
The Global Health Curriculum, overseen by OGHE, was initiated and designed by faculty and students whose goal was to design an academic elective curriculum for medical students interested in global health. This curriculum is now a highly regarded and a popular elective program for Weill Cornell medical students.
