LSTM is committed to developing the next generation of Global Leaders and we have a wealth of experience in capacity development in strengthening health systems worldwide.

LSTM’s Global Health programme has been designed in response to employer feedback on required global health skills and competencies. The online learning approach allows flexibility and accessibility, thereby enabling students to remain in employment whilst being part of a network of like-minded global health experts across the globe.

The scholarships are funded by a number of individuals, trusts, and foundations. LSTM’s Director of Partnerships, Michael Lurie, said: “LSTM’s vision of developing the next generation of global health leaders is underpinned by this flagship programme. The addition of these generous scholarships mean that we can ensure that those rising stars in Ghana and Nigeria can enhance and share their expertise and join our global cohort of students.”

Eligibility Criteria
