International Partnerships.   Based on Trust.   Built to Last.

In all, 43 University of Michigan Medical School students embarked on educational experiences abroad in 2018-19, many with financial support from Global REACH. We support a variety of clinical and research-based programs for students seeking to engage in global health.

Our Faculty Associates and Faculty Affiliates network boasts 200-plus colleagues engaged in global health from nearly every UMMS department and discipline as well as colleagues from other U-M health science schools. Network members receive our newsletter, attend regular global health forum events, are eligible for our Partnership Development Grants and more.

UMMS hosted 52 visiting students from international partner institutions in addition to dozens more visiting scholars and leaders from abroad in 2018-19. Global REACH facilitates most of their visits.
