Peace Corps Program

The Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine has had a long connection and affiliation with the United States Peace Corps. For the duration of the program's existence, the school participated in the Master's International Program, which ended this past year. The school is now thrilled to add the Paul D. Coverdell Fellow Program to its roster of Peace Corps activities as well as our own Global Scholars Program, designed to encourage and assist current students who plan to enter the Peace Corps or other international service after earning their degree.

We are proud to host a growing community of Returned Peace Corps Volunteer faculty, staff and students, as well as hundreds of SPHTM alumni that have dedicated their time and knowledge to service in the United States Peace Corps. SPTHM alumni are currently serving in Benin, Botswana, Cambodia, Dominican Republic, Ethiopia, The Gambia, Guatemala, Guyana, Malawi, Madagascar, Mongolia, Paraguay, Peru, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Vanuatu, and Zambia. These students take their MPH skills and apply them in communities around the world.
