|The Emory Global Health Institute developed the GH Courses @ Emory directory to provide students with a searchable listing of global health related courses and programs available at every school on campus. EGHI gathered this information from a variety of sources, including school websites and school course catalogues. The level of detail available from these different sources varies widely, but this resource is intended to be a “front door” for students to become more involved with the global health offerings across the University.
