The international focus of our department emphasizes that research and teaching about disease and prevention must incorporate a global perspective. International health studies ethnic groups in the U.S. as well as international patterns of disease in order to reach conclusions about risk factors and prevention that will be universally applicable in reducing the burden of disease and disability worldwide. Toward that end, we offer courses in international health, promote research internationally, invite scientists from many countries to join us for teaching and research, and maintain a network of resources and contacts here and abroad.
