Malawi Interprofessional Program

Students at Malawi

Students from each of University of Maryland’s six professional schools in Baltimore were chosen every year for the University’s six-week inter-professional research program in Malawi. The project was funded by the University of Maryland Office of the President and the Global Health Inter-professional Council. In 2011, six students were selected to study rural access to malaria treatment. In 2012, twelve students were selected from the six schools to conduct a study on maternal/child health services. Read more about the 2011 and 2012 projects.
