Given the fast pace of changing clinical practices and increasing access to medical knowledge, how should we train today’s students for tomorrow’s global health challenges? This is the central question global health educators are—or should be—asking themselves in as they develop global health programs for their students and trainees.

The Center for Health Equity's director, Dr. Lisa V. Adams is the lead author on an article recently published in BMC Medical Education aimed at addressing this complex question. In their article, Dr. Adams and her co-authors, Dr. Agnes Binagwaho, the former Minister of Health of Rwanda, and two Dartmouth College alumni, emphasize the importance of putting international partnership and a shared drive for health equity at the center of our global health work and training programs.
