WORKING TOWARDS A CAREER IN INTERNATIONAL HEALTH

There are many roads you can take to embark on a career in international health. Medicine, demography, nursing, veterinary medicine, and health administration are some of the many disciplines encompassed by the vast field of international health.

Because the University of Montreal doesn’t yet have a training program specifically in international health, you’ll need to orient your career proactively and demonstrate your motivation off-campus. Before you complete your bachelor’s degree, this could mean doing international cooperation internships. Good sites to monitor for such opportunities are those of the CECI or idealist.org, where internship opportunities are regularly posted. Once you have your bachelor’s degree, you can focus your master’s-level work on an aspect of international health by seeking out professors who are working or have worked in this field. You may wish to consult the following non-exhaustive list of such professors.
