The University of Notre Dame's Eck Institute for Global Health (EIGH) serves as a university-wide enterprise that recognizes health as a fundamental human right and works to promote research, training, and service to advance health standards and reduce health disparities for all. The EIGH brings together multidisciplinary teams to understand and address health challenges that disproportionately affect the poor and to train the next generation of global health leaders.
The two-year Master of Science in Global Health (MSGH) program enables students to bridge classroom training with complex, real health needs of low-resource communities around the world through hands-on experience.
Along with Purdue University and Indiana University (IU), the University of Notre Dame will now be part of the Midwest Center of Excellence for Vector-Borne Diseases (MCEVBD).
