Global health aims to improve the health levels of all humanity. Chinese universities, guided by national development strategies, are endeavoring to cultivate highly qualified global health professionals with international perspectives and interdisciplinary knowledge. This paper conducts a comparative analysis of the global health master's talent cultivation models at world-class universities such as Johns Hopkins University, Harvard University, University of Washington, Yale University, and Columbia University. It analyzes their talent cultivation objectives, research directions, curriculum structures, faculty and teaching resources, as well as industry connections. The findings provide insights for Chinese universities in cultivating global health master's talents: defining clear objectives, optimizing curriculum design, enhancing faculty expertise, strengthening international and industry collaborations, and focusing on lifelong learning and post-graduate career prospects.
