An experience-driven investigation of an issue will be developed by the student while participating in the Global Health Immersion Program (GHIP). This III program is for students with a strong interest in global health and underserved communities and is particularly suited to students on the Global Health Pathway. Students spend 8 weeks at a UW-affiliated partner site in a developing country, and are supported by local site faculty and by the GHIP Faculty Director, who is based in Seattle. GHIP students work with local partners to understand social determinants of health, conduct a community needs assessment, and devise and implement a project to improve the health of local communities.
