Office for Global Health
The Office for Global Health, part of the Sydney Medical School, works with the University of Sydney's Health Faculties to internationalise the research we undertake, the experience of our students and staff, and our approaches to learning and teaching. We also aim to contribute to the health and wellbeing of our region by engaging in health projects with some of our nearest neighbours.
