Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine’s Institute for Global Health unifies two growing and successful entities, the Global Health Initiative Fund and the Center for Global Health, formerly a part of the Institute for Public Health and Medicine (IPHAM).
The Institute for Global Health continues to focus on the three major areas that the Center for Global Health supported: 1) student, resident, fellow, and faculty education in global health; 2) coordination and support of faculty to carry out global health research; and 3) partnership building and clinical outreach to partner communities.
The investment and increased interest in global health across the University sparked an interest amongst faculty in benchmarking the Institute’s strengths and weaknesses and in developing a plan to help guide the focus and the work of the Institute for the next five years.

Former students, residents and fellows who have trained through our institute’s programs can reconnect with us, connect with other alumni, stay informed of the latest news and choose to give back.
