Report from Circle U. Summer School on Global Health

Université Paris Cité was delighted  to host 36 PhD students and young researchers from the 9 Circle U. universities for the very first Circle U. Summer School on Global Health entitled "Rethinking Global Health". The summer school took place July 4-8, 2022 at Imagine Institute.


Rethinking Global Health

The interdisciplinary programme designed by the Circle U. Global Health Chairs was an excellent opportunity for the participants to learn more about a wide range of topics such as health inequities from an individual to a global perspective, the distribution of health resources, migration and the role of women's health, and the past and future of globalized medicine, from colonial medicine to global health.

Through a combination of lectures, active learning, group work and problem-based approaches, participants gained a better understanding of the challenges and issues of global health.

This summer school was a real space for exchange and cooperation between students and teachers of the alliance and across disciplines. Some of them were able to present their research topic under the format my thesis in 180 seconds.

In addition to the academic programme, participants were able to attend guided tours. The tours included visits at the Quai-Branly museum and at the Museum of the History of Medicine. It was an opportunity for the participants to continue the reflections carried out throughout the week in a more informal setting.
