GHEC is a consortium of faculty and health care educators dedicated to global health education in North American health professions schools and residency programs. Founded in 1991 as the International Medical Health Education Consortium, IHMEC met an evident need, membership rapidly grew, educational products were developed and the annual conferences were well attended. In 2005 IHMEC changed its name the Global Health Education Consortium, the new name reflecting the consortium's desire to include other health professions besides medicine and a preference for the more inclusive term of 'global' over the traditional one of 'international.' GHEC works to promote and facilitate global health education in four areas - curriculum and training materials development, clinical training, career development, and education policy.
