Collaborations & Initiatives
Global Medicine has a long tradition of providing educational programming for an active and engaged global population in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area. We are particularly proud that many of our community initiatives are resident-led and resident-driven, because we believe that community involvement is a key component of global health training.
