Designed to prepare students to lead tomorrow’s global health workforce, Rice 360° Institute for Global Health offers innovative undergraduate programs that engage students to design and implement new technologies to solve real global health challenges. Through the minor, internships, fellowships and Ph.D. programs, these early stage technologies are designed, evaluated, refined, deployed and scaled across the world.

We transform students into innovators and ideas

In 2006, Elizabeth was a junior in high school in Waterford, Virginia and becoming a doctor was on her radar. On a whim, she and her mother, a physical therapist, emailed a small hospital in Malawi to ask if they could come for the summer to help. Six months later, the reply was: “Yes, come.” And they went, providing physical therapy and taking vital signs all summer long.
