The Global Health Institute may serve as a model for other schools

Narrator:       This is Science Today. The University of California system plans to launch a multi-campus, Global Health Institute focusing on public health concerns and education, which could serve as a model for other professional schools in the future. Anil Deolalikar, a professor of economics at the University of California, Riverside will co-direct the proposed One Health Center.

Deolalikar:     The plan is that initially we would be offering a masters of global health. We are working on both a one-year masters and a two-years master's degree. Students would be taking classes from across all the 10 campuses, either physically or virtually. There would be a field project involved. This would be a requirement so that students would actually go out and spend a certain amount of time in the field, either working a specific global health issue in a developing country or right here in the United States, or even in California itself.

Narrator:       For Science Today, I'm Larissa Branin.
