Office of Global Health Initiatives

What We Do

The Office of Global Health Initiatives (OGHI) serves as a resource to the six schools of UTHealth in facilitating and supporting productive relationships with international partners.

OGHI facilitates the establishment of formal collaborative agreements with partner institutions. We offer support in hosting visiting delegations from abroad and assist with the placement of international observers, trainees and visiting scientists at UTHealth schools.

Our website offers UTHealth students and faculty information on a variety of international study and service opportunities. For international visitors, our website provides information on opportunities to train and collaborate at UTHealth as well as general information on visiting Houston.
