Global Health and Surgery Interest Group (GHIG)

The purpose of the Global Health Interest Group is to create a forum for medical students to participate in projects, discussions, and advocacy regarding the advancement of Global Health and to connect with mentors working internationally. Our mission is to increase awareness of Global Health issues through education and service. The group's vision is to promote a multidisciplinary approach to Global Health, which incorporates the knowledge and expertise of each of the professional schools on campus. We will work collaboratively both within the UMB network (facilitated by the Student Center for Global Education) and throughout the Baltimore community as a whole, to contribute to the advancement of Global Health, as well as to broaden the scope of our own global perspectives. Contact for more information or visit to see what a previous year's group did!
