Perspectives on Global Health is a 10-week intensive experience designed for high school students ages 15-17. With global health as one of the biggest topics in recent times, students around the world are invited to join in the conversation as we explore key topics on global health with a global citizenship approach. While it may be difficult to travel at this time, we’re excited to bring this enriching University of Toronto academic experience to you 

Students will explore and analyze the complex factors that highlight key global health challenges and also have the opportunity to explore their own role in finding solutions to these challenges as engaged global citizens. Under the guidance of a U of T instructor and student life facilitator, students will be encouraged to learn from one another through teamwork, creative projects, and interactive activities.
