As a global university and as a reflection of Georgetown’s commitment to social justice, our focus on global health centers on achieving health equity for the most vulnerable populations of the world and to ensure global health security. Faculty and students from the School of Nursing & Health Studies and the School of Medicine carry out their work as part of the university-wide Global Health Initiative, which serves as a platform for facilitating collaboration and supporting research, teaching, and service in global health and for developing concrete solutions to the health challenges facing families and communities throughout the world. The NHS Department of International Health administers two degree programs in global health, one at the bachelor’s level and one at the master’s level.
