Virtual Internships & Courses

CFHI Virtual Global Health Internships offer undergraduate, pre-health, and graduate-level participants the unique opportunity to explore global and public health issues broadly, highlighting how health systems around the world deliver healthcare in a variety of diverse environments, exploring cultural interplays in urban and rural areas, and incorporating indigenous healing practices. Students learn how communities are addressing their most pressing health challenges, including chronic disease, maternal-child health, infectious disease, and reproductive health, all while gaining insights into the public health realities of the region. The internship is enriched with cross-cultural assessment and interaction tools, and with carefully planned cultural activities that allow participants to experience the rich diversity of CFHI’s global partner communities.


For faculty and administrators: We invite you to access Interdependence: Global Solidarity and Local Actions offered by the Community-based Global Learning Collaborative. Interdependence is a new, growing, and adapting collection of online learning activities and critical civic tools designed to deepen college-level learners’ understanding of  and engagement with ethical interdependence. The resources include tools that support ethical engagement across cultures and power differentials as learners, researchers, and organizers.
