Around the World

Over the summer, to help celebrate the school's 75th anniversary, SPH students, faculty, and community partners donned SPH T-shirts in countries around the world. Summer internships are a key part of the U-M SPH curriculum, and the 2016 numbers show why. Over 200 students completed internships—nearly a quarter of them in international settings. In countries as distant as Mongolia, Bolivia, Thailand, and Jordan, SPH students addressed such issues as refugee health policy, the nutritional status of low-income children, electronic waste recycling, cancer screening, emergency preparedness, antiobiotic-resistant infections among war-injured civilians, and mining safety. Their efforts bear witness to the enduring legacy of this historic school.
