The Star University Center for Global Health Services is an ongoing project that will be a four-year training program addressing critical health issues and sustainable health solutions in Africa.
This program has a forward-thinking approach to global health that promotes learning and skill development through program implementation and evaluation to address a defined global health need and to enact sustainable improvements in rural health care. Our goal is to prepare qualified nurses for leadership positions in global health in order to improve care, education, and research for citizens in the developing world.
Thank you for your interest in our program.
