The UC San Diego Global Health Program, Students for Global Health and the Global Forum are proud to bring you the “Quarterly Conversations in Global Health” series. This event is an opportunity for the Global Health community to come together to discuss relevant issues in the field from an interdisciplinary perspective. We strive to create a platform to increase interaction with UC San Diego students, faculty and local organizations to facilitate productive conversations and change.
The Undergraduate Student Advisory Committee aka “Global Health Reps” are charged to advise the Global Health Program on issues related to undergraduate education, including but not limited to courses, curriculum, instruction, student involvement opportunities, research opportunities and student programs.
This school year, the Global Health Program is excited to welcome 2 new representatives to our Student Advisory Committee that will bring in new ideas, hard work and energy as they provide themselves as resources and connections to support our global health student population at UC San Diego! Feel free to reach out to them with questions about the program.
Apply to be a part of the new GHP Mentor and Mentee Program! The purpose of UCSD’s Global Health Mentor and Mentee Program is to provide an active networking community for undergraduate students within the Global Health Program.
This program is what you make out of it, it is completely flexible and student-centered.
If you’re a second year student or above, you can sign up to be both a mentor and mentee. Please note that first year and new transfer students have priority as mentees. Depending on the number of applicants, not everyone may be paired with a mentor. It is highly encouraged that upper class students apply to be a mentor.
