Global Public Health Scholars Program


Global Public Health crosses physical and academic boundaries to explore the connections between health, culture, economic development, and environmental sustainability around the world while advocating for the wellbeing of all communities. Students gain an understanding of the conceptual and practical foundations of community health, explore global public health challenges, and consider ways to improve population health in diverse contexts.



Sophomore Practicum and The Academic Showcase 

Each cohort of University of Maryland's College Park Scholars completes a practicum or capstone project related to their area of study. For Global Public Health (GPH) students’ practicum, they engage in research, internship, or service-learning projects. The College Park Scholars Academic Showcase is a culminating event that provides the opportunity to present their posters and accompanying oral presentations, to fellow students, campus faculty, and administrators. 


​The Virtual Showcase website first served as a way for our 2020 and 2021 cohorts to present their hard work. It now continues to live on as an archive of the incredible work our students do each year. Their posters and presentations have been uploaded for peers, advisors, and others to see. Click on any title to view the poster. Scroll down below each poster to play the oral presentation by each student. If you would like more information on any project, leave a comment. Each student is monitoring their poster and can respond.

Thank you for taking the time to check out the awesome projects our students completed!
