How to Work Abroad

Global Services

The Emory Global Health Institute and The Office of Global Strategy and Initiatives developed the Global Services website to assist Emory faculty and staff conducting projects outside of the United States. The site provides resources to faculty and staff regarding travel abroad, establishing in-country operations, hosting international visitors at Emory, and other services pertaining to global work.

Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs) Resources

Working and/or studying in low- and middle-income countries can present a variety of unanticipated challenges and benefits to people from high-income countries. To help prepare Emory community members who plan to work or study in LMICs, EGHI conducts an annual Pre-Departure Workshop. This workshop, which is coordinated in collaboration with other Emory schools and departments, focuses on numerous issues including health, safety, and cultural awareness and sensitivity.
