Education for Health Professionals

Global Health Curriculum for Medical StudentS at CornelL

Sunny pioneered new models for interprofessional, boundary-spanning approaches to health professional education and delivery in the United States and abroad. He has worked with leading voices in public and global health, including former directors of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, to position the university community as a vehicle for global health problem-solving and wide social impact. The work at Weill Cornell has led to the institution's first global health curriculum and the Institute of Medicine, a proposed new social contract for all health professionals. He has led the call for a transdisciplinary model of education to integrate social determinants (causes of the causes) into current medical and health professional curricula.
