Global Health & Disparities Path of Excellence

The Global Health & Disparities (GHD) was the first program offered to Michigan medical students under the Paths of Excellence.  It was created to provide students an opportunity to integrate foundational, investigative, and experiential learning to become agents of sustainable change to reduce domestic and global health disparities.

The GHD program aims to provide a flexible, mentored, self-regulated environment to shape student learning within the domains of:

  • Social determinants of health disparities
  • Tools and strategies to promote sustainable change
  • Health care systems and policy
  • Professional and leadership development

Global REACH helps to facilitate the international activities of UMMS constituents.  As such, GHD and Global REACH become complementary partners in facilitating UMMS students' activities in global health disparities.
