Alumni: Thank you for being part of our Pathway!

I specifically came to UMN for the global health pathway, and I was not disappointed. Through my training I gained what I consider a top tier education in tropical medicine, refugee health, and global health. My experiences at the Center for International Health and during my rotations with the International Organization for Migration inspired me to make a career of refugee and global health. Honestly, I can say if it weren’t for the global health training I received at UMN, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
