Global REACH

Research, Education & Collaboration in Health

Global REACH facilitates international partnerships, programs and exchanges across the University of Michigan Medicine School campus, helping our faculty members, trainees and students engage in meaningful global health activities around the world. Whether we are facilitating individual partnerships or sweeping institutional collaborations, we believe that international collaboration should be a two-way street benefiting our own institution as well our partners abroad.

Our partnerships comprise many activities including joint research, vibrant bilateral education exchange, and more. No matter the individual aims, Global REACH strives to facilitate partnerships that grounded in mutual benefit and respect, based on trust, and built to last.


To be the leading US academic unit in preparing the human capital to establish sustainable solutions that advance health and reduce disparities, particularly among the underserved world-wide.

Our mission is to facilitate health research, education, and collaboration among Michigan Medicine learners and faculty with our global partners to reduce health disparities for the benefit of communities worldwide.
