About Us

Global Health Institute

The Global Health Institute (GHI) provides international service opportunities for staff, faculty and students.  GHI also provides focus, coordination, and logistical support for the many international initiatives arising from Loma Linda University schools and hospitals.

Since its founding over 100 years ago, Loma Linda University's mission has been to "make man whole," not only locally, but globally.  This rich tradition of service has been carried out by thousands of employees, students, and graduates who have served overseas.

The bottom line: Loma Linda University is about global service.


"It was for this [sending workers overseas]

that Loma Linda was brought into existence,

and it is for this that we should live."
