The IU Center for Global Health will serve as an anchor for global health curricula across the campus and a resource for students or faculty in any discipline who wish to engage in global health.

IU Interdepartmental Global Health Medical Residency Training Track
Over the last decade, there has been an explosion of interest in global health by health professions students, and an increasing number of these top students seeking careers in global health. The development of IUSM interdepartmental residency and fellowship Global Health training tracks, made possible by the IU Center for Global Health, will make IU's post-graduate training programs unique in the U.S. Only a select group of academic medical centers such as Harvard and Duke have such intensive tracks, but none of those institutions can match the depth and breadth of AMPATH's base of operation. The Global Health tracks will attract some of the top medical students from across the U.S. We expect that graduates of IU's Global Health training programs will become leaders and key participants at IU and other universities.

Building Capacity through Research Training Program Development and Implementation
The IU Center for Global Health will educate, support and sustain a critical mass of local and national health leaders, prepared to continue and expand partnership-founded initiatives in health care, health education, health research and health policy. Creation of a new education and research training infrastructure will develop and support local health professionals to design, implement, examine and teach innovative models of health systems development and become primary authors on highly competitive extramural grants and manuscripts, enabling the funding and recognition of being global health innovators and leaders.

Building Capacity through Clinical Training Programs for Health Care Providers and Professional Extenders
The Center will also educate, support and sustain a critical network of health care providers and professionals at all levels, including front line providers (professional extenders) at the community/village level, to provide responsive care equitably distributed to those in need.
