The Global Health Peru Program is a program offered by Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia which educates, guides, and trains future researchers, teachers and leaders through innovation, collaboration and leadership. UPCH is currently the leading health research university in Peru and we strive to create physical and virtual collaborative spaces between faculty, students, decision-makers, and researchers. We offer courses, mentorship, scholarships, and exchange programs between UPCH and foreign universities. Students will receive fully immersive experiences in global health taught by leading professors and researchers in Peru. 


Global Health Peru began as a multidisciplinary initiative at UPCH with support from U.S. National Institutes of Health and the Fogarty International Center, permitting the combination of strengths and expertise of the eight Schools at UPCH as well as other important national and international institutions from the public and private sectors.
