Global Health Research and Education

Center for Clinical Global Health Education (CCGHE)

The Center for Clinical Global Health Education (CCGHE) provides high quality clinical education and research training for care providers and health researchers and professional mentorship for in-country clinicians and U.S. students to become productive researchers in global health settings. CCGHE offers online courses and monthly virtual Global Grand Rounds in Infectious Diseases for care providers in low- and middle-income countries, and online resources for infectious diseases providers:

  • ID Clinical Minute provides US-based and international clinicians and trainees with synopses of information about infectious disease practice relevant for the care of adults. Continuing Medical Education is also offered for this resource.
  • HIV-ASSIST is a web-based platform designed to assist and educate clinicians in personalizing antiretroviral (ARV) regimens for their patients.

CCGHE was established in 2005 to improve health outcomes in resource-limited communities through infectious disease research and education. Clinical and epidemiological studies—both experimental and observational—are conducted in partnership with academic and government medical institutions in India and other low and middle income countries with high burden of diseases such as HIV and TB. CCGHE’s large research infrastructure—particularly in India, serves as a base research training for both U.S. students and in-country clinicians interested in redirecting career focus from patient care to research.
