International Relations

The Faculty’s international presence takes many forms. Our faculty, students and staff spearhead more than 100 global health initiatives that include capacity building, education and research sectors. We promote international cooperation in health research to encourage, facilitate and coordinate the development of international activities and projects initiated by Faculty members, academic units or by the Temerty Faculty of Medicine.

We maintain international partnerships through research collaboration such as graduate student, post-Doctoral Fellows and faculty member exchanges, as well as capacity building, student exchange and clinical service.
