Student Programs

The UCGHI Center of Expertise in One Health educates students through work that has global impacts. Through integrated training and research programs, UC students can gain international research experience through the GloCal Health Fellowship, UCGHI Summer Fellowships, and the Sri Lanka Field Course. In addition to fellowships, the UCGHI also offers seminar and conference opportunities to students, faculty and staff including UC Global Health Day—a campus-wide showcase for the research, training and outreach in global health that is happening across the University of California. 

The Center of Expertise in One Health realizes its mission by:  

  • Integrating expertise drawn from a variety of disciplines, including the health sciences, agricultural and environmental sciences, social sciences, and engineering; 
  • Engaging collaboratively with partners in California and around the world in action-based research aimed at improving and promoting health using the One Health approach; and 
  • Training a cadre of global leaders, health workers, scientists and engineers in the One Health approach
