Georgetown University is Accepting Applications into their Global Health Law and Global Health Law and International Institutions Programs

Students in the Global Health Law Program spend one full-time year or up to three part-time years of study at Georgetown Law in Washington, D.C. They benefit from Georgetown’s unparalleled depth and breadth of course offerings in health law and related fields as well as an array of externship opportunities in the Washington area. Students may also choose to supplement their program of study with a certificate in International Human Rights, World Trade Organization Law, or National Security Law or complete a graduate independent research project under the guidance of a member of Georgetown’s distinguished faculty.

Students in the recently launched Global Health Law and International Institutions Program begin their course of study at Georgetown with either one full-time semester or up to three part-time semesters and then complete the program with a full-time spring semester at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, Switzerland. Between their coursework at Georgetown and their studies at the Graduate Institute, most students will participate in winter internships at international institutions in Geneva, such as the World Health Organization, UNAIDS, and the World Trade Organization.
