One of the principal objectives of the Center for Global Health is to create opportunities for students and faculty members to undertake exchanges and collaborative research with our growing list of partner institutions.

We now have partnerships and collaborations with universities and health institutes in over twenty countries.

Our School is able to leverage its unique partnership with the New York State Department of Health, and the broad range of state-of-the-art technical capabilities it brings together, to launch innovative collaborative research, teaching exchanges, and capacity building programs both at home and with partner institutions around the world.
