Milwaukee, Nov. 18, 2019 – The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) is excited to offer a new, highly interactive Master of Science Global Health Equity program. The MS Global Health Equity program will prepare students to be global health leaders who learn by engaging with diverse local and global populations.

“This program provides a mixture of in-person and online courses with a common theme of health equity and an emphasis on community-engaged approaches,” said Kelli Brown, MPH, an education program coordinator at MCW. “Our students will have the chance to learn from faculty with extensive and diverse global health experiences and will have hands-on opportunities to put their knowledge into practice.”

The MS Global Health Equity program will be open to applications from students of various undergraduate backgrounds. For students who have completed their undergraduate degree and are considering going to medical school and would like to gain more practical experience, this program would be incredibly beneficial.

This program can be completed as a part-time option, which makes it possible for working professionals to also succeed in the program. There will be several online courses offered by MCW’s internationally based faculty partners while many of the core courses will be offered in person by faculty at MCW. Full-time students will be able to complete the program in three semesters and one summer.

Applications are now being accepted for this program. The priority deadline for fall admission is March 1, 2020, followed by rolling admissions through a final deadline of July 1. Please visit the program website for more details:
