About us

uOttawa Global Health.com


Created by the University of Ottawa Global Health Committee, uOttawaGlobalHealth.com is a bilingual website dedicated to bringing medical students a comprehensive resource for all things global health related. From upcoming events at the Faculty of Medicine to a blog about various global health topics, this website allows students from across Canada to learn more about global health and advocacy. Find electives abroad with our comprehensive Global health Electives Database, and keep up-to-date with the latest opportunities from the IFMSA.

The University of Ottawa Global Health Committee is a component of the Aesculapian Society, the medical student body of the Faculty of Medicine.  The committee encompasses local and national representatives from the Aesculapian Society, the Canadian Federation of Medical Students as well as the Action Global Health Network. 

The Global Health Committee promotes education and advocacy in global health through the organization of events, advocacy campaigns and educational programs. The committee is dedicated to facilitating collaboration not only between the various actors within the Faculty of Medicine but across the University of Ottawa community.
