USF Medicine International
A unifying theme of the projects with our international partners is capacity building of healthcare providers. We believe that if underserved communities are to successfully cope with diseases, our efforts to empower caregivers must include traditionally marginalized groups in prevention and intervention activities. In developing countries, increasing the capacity of the healthcare workforce to meet the needs of their patients is an essential goal (WHO). We acknowledge that international capacity-building must focus on enhancing the knowledge, skills, and practices of local caregivers within the resource constraints of their communities.
The USF Global Discovery Database, powered by UCosmic, houses the university's international partnership agreements. Search USF Health International agreements, as well as take a look at the university's global footprint, by searching based on geography, discipline, or keyword. Faculty are encouraged to review their profiles and update their international activities.
