The CHST programs offer opportunities for students to learn through both curricular and co-curricular experiences. Specifically, students are encouraged to participate in research pursuits sponsored by RIT faculty and external clinical and/or industrial partners. Students may also want to pursue Study Abroad to expand learning beyond RIT. Biomedical Sciences students may choose to pursue their premedical studies at universities, hospitals and medical facilities in Croatia where RIT has had a branch campus since 1997.

 Global Study

Considerations of Global Health issues are of increasing importance to tomorrow’s health care workforce. In definition of “global health”, it’s essential to consider this perspective as research, service, and training that address health problems that transcend national boundaries, that disproportionately affect the resource poor, and that are best addressed by multidisciplinary solutions. Our vision is a sustainable and innovative university-wide Global Health research and training program at Rochester Institute of Technology that engages undergraduate, graduate, and medical students and faculty from multiple disciplines to solve problems of global health. The end result will be that more of RIT's outstanding students and faculty in medical sciences and basic life sciences will make significant commitments to global health.
