global health at MIT Sloan

Modern medicine could improve lives, yet fails to reach millions. Innovations in management may help address the constraints. We focus on organizations on the front lines of care delivery, studying the issues, interacting with experts, and connecting students with real-world leaders and managers in varied settings to explore what works and what’s needed.

Our dozens of field partners have taught us much, and by embedding students’ field experience in an iterative learning process, we aim to bring rigor to action. Along the way, we put MIT’s tradition of mind and hand into practice and build on our commitment to connect education and impact.
