Global Health


The graduate programs listed below participate in the Collaborative Doctoral Program in Global Health. This program offers doctoral students the opportunity to develop cooperative and interdisciplinary graduate education and research in global health. We view global health as an integrative construct that focuses on the inter-relationships between local, regional, national, and international factors influencing health and effective interventions and policies that will address these factors. This collaborative program enhances the student experience by offering a broad base of faculty expertise and an opportunity to share research ideas and results from multiple disciplinary perspectives.

The Collaborative Doctoral Program in Global Health signals the University's commitment to improving the well-being of people in Canada and around the world through higher education and advanced research in global health.

Student research is supervised by a member of the graduate faculty in the home unit. Normally, students in the collaborative program are supervised by a member of the collaborative program's core faculty, or have a core faculty member serve on the supervisory committee. The home unit shall recommend the granting of the degree. Upon successful completion of the doctoral degree requirements of the participating home department and the collaborative program, students receive the notation “Completed Collaborative Program in Global Health” on their transcript and parchment.
