The Center for Global Health

The Health Sciences Center for Global Health (HSCGH) at The Ohio State University is a collaboration among the Ohio State Colleges of Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Optometry, Pharmacy, Public Health and Veterinary Medicine and the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences.

The HSCGH was funded in part by the Fogarty International Center of the National Institutes of Health. The framework grant, which targets developing countries, allows the center to create even greater opportunities for Ohio State students in both research and education.

Approved by the Board of Trustees in July 2007, the HSCGH works to increase student interest in global careers, prepare students for those careers and to promote, develop and coordinate interdisciplinary global health education and research throughout the health sciences colleges and the larger community.
