Map and Directions


Migration is a complex phenomenon that has become an integral part of the modern world. International migration has substantially increased during recent years, driven by economic disparities, violence and globalization among other factors. Currently there are estimated 244 million international migrants in the world, and they face particular health challenges and conditions.

The Annual Summer Institute on Migration and Global Health is an event that has gained national and international recognition, since it is one of the few academic spaces dedicated to present and analyze the interrelation between migration and health, from a multi-disciplinary perspective. The Summer Institute provides researchers, faculty, graduate students and professionals working with migrant communities around the world, a unique opportunity to learn about different health issues that affect mobile populations.

The three-day course includes a combination of lectures, workshops, poster sessions, and field trips, to offer an exceptional opportunity not only to learn, but to create professional networks. Some of the topics covered throughout the Institute are: current and historical trends on migration and global health; access to health care; health promotion; refugee health; mental health; research methodologies for migrant and refugee populations; best practices to work with vulnerable and underserved displaced people; and current political issues related to migrants and refugees.
