Department of Global Health*

*Curriculum for the Department of Global Health is under development and we are hopeful to launch it in Fall 2023. Stay tuned for events and other updates by Global Health faculty and staff.

The world faces significant threats to human health. Climate change, an unprecedented crisis of Covid-19 and a rapidly growing array of non-communicable diseases are impacting vulnerable communities across the globe. At Stempel College, the Department of Global Health will center its work around research, innovation, and capacity strengthening to help support people affected by today’s global health challenges.

The Department of Global Health brings together collaborators from academia, government, the private sector and beyond to provide scientific solutions to the world’s population. The Department’s research and academic activities will also complement FIU’s new Population Health Institute to propel collaborative research on addressing health inequities, and to enhance capacity strengthening activities, both locally and globally.
