The Eck Institute for Global Health (EIGH) is dedicated to educating a new generation of global health practitioners including the exceptional undergraduate students at Notre Dame. Below are some of the opportunities for undergraduate students to engage with the EIGH:

Minor in Global Health

The Minor in Global Health aligns with the mission of the University to develop compassionate awareness of issues including poverty and injustice that often affect health. Students in this program will have opportunities to foster a sense of human solidarity while advancing their knowledge and skills to facilitate health as fundamental human right.

The 15-credit Minor in Global Health leverages interdisciplinary collaborations to understand the complex health needs of resource-poor populations around the world.

For more information, please visit the Minor in Global Health webpage, or contact ghminor@nd.edu

Notre Dame Global Health Case Competition

In 2016, the EIGH organized the first annual Notre Dame Global Health Case Competition. This competition brings together undergraduate and graduate students from multiple disciplines to creatively address critical global health challenges in a competitive and collaborative environment. Students are given an innovative learning experience that trains future global health leaders. The winning team of the internal Notre Dame competition will apply for the external competition hosted each year at Emory University.
