Local-Global Partnerships

MOUs

Many faculty members at the University of Chicago are involved with research and clinical projects that take place in international locations. CGH has identified several sites where University of Chicago students and trainees can participate in clinical or research activities. At each site, trainees will have an opportunity to work with local staff and get a first hand look at medicine and health care delivery in an international setting.

Below is a table summarzing all of our MOUs, detailing location, eligibility, and the faculty site contact. Eligibility varies depending upon availability. For more details on each site see corresponding links.
