Overview

During this global health program, you will learn from professionals in the field about current approaches to promoting health, preventing disease, and helping communities in need around the world.

Academic Program Overview:

In the first week, students will work to solve global health challenges by turning everyday materials into innovative solutions to combat disease, malnutrition, outbreaks, or other public health challenges.

In the second week, students put their skills to the test in a Global Health competition where they work in teams to come up with a realistic proposal for a simulated challenge. By using an experiential learning approach, students will quickly engage in the topic, and the instructor introduces the underlying theory and concepts as students tackle these issues while trying to improve health for all people around the world.

Program Highlights:

- Investigate and solve global health challenges through hands-on projects including outbreak investigations

- Explore how global challenges such as poverty, gender, and climate change affect health worldwide

- Recognize historical and current major disease outbreak patterns and identify strategies for the prevention and control of disease

- Learn from experts in the field to explore the variety of academic and career options within global health
