Global Opportunities

There are many different ways to explore global health. Grouped by type of experience, these links will connect you to different opportunities available to students at the UCF College of Medicine. While some are sponsored directly by College of Medicine faculty, others are sponsored by  partner institutions, other medical schools, or non-profit service organizations. Please contact Dr. Simms-Cendan for more information about specific programs.
