Global Health

The Yale School of Nursing’s Office of Global Health (OGH) promotes education and engagement in activities that advance population-level improvements in health of communities around the world. As the central coordination point for all international activities at YSN, OGH develops and organizes educational programming on topics related to global health and serves as the liaison office for the wide array of activities and opportunities offered through the Yale Institute for Global Health. Faculty, staff, and students can access OGH for advice on ideas involving global-focused service or local and international scholarly activities. In cooperation with the Office of Research, the OGH offers consultation to YSN faculty regarding their interests in or plans to conduct research that involves international engagement. OGH also helps to facilitate successful engagement of partners to collaborate and support faculty research. The office also oversees the Global Health Track: see Global Health Track under Curriculum in the chapter Master’s Program (M.S.N.). The OGH is led by the associate dean for global health and equity.
