The Harvard Medical School Department of Global Health and Social Medicine offers a Master of Medical Sciences in Global Health Delivery (MMSc-GHD).
The MMSc-GHD is a degree-granting master's program that offers a rigorous cross-university curriculum focused on developing the tools needed to perform social and delivery science and policy research in resource-limited settings. The core component of the MMSc-GHD is a field-based mentored research project in global health, culminating in a master's thesis. We invite you to learn more about MMSc-GHD program details.
Elsie Ballah, MD, MMSc '18 and her work in Liberia was featured in the HMS News in an article titled "Shaping Global Solutions" (1/2/2019).
