The University of Iowa's Global Health Studies Program is a model of interdisciplinary education that engages students and faculty in real world health problems, and challenges them to embark on global health careers which place a priority on improving health and achieving equity in health for all people worldwide. Global Health Studies graduates find employment in a range of global health related sectors such as non-profit organizations, immigrant and refugee health, community-based health education, governmental agencies, health policy, and advocacy. Because local health is global health, many GHS alum find opportunities in Global Health Organizations in Iowa, while graduates interested in international issues often work abroad. Global Health Studies students have also gone on to graduate and professional programs in public health, international development, medicine, pharmacy, nursing, law, urban and regional planning, sustainable agriculture, non-profit management, and public administration.
