Description
Whether you’re considering a global health learning experience such as a clinical rotation, a research project, or volunteer work, or are preparing to work abroad, this is the course for you! This is the first of three courses designed by a team of global health experts to help you prepare for successful global health learning experiences and projects. It provides guidance for undergraduate and graduate students, medical trainees, and volunteers. In this course, you will learn how to determine what type of global health learning experience is right for you and how to logistically set one up. You’ll have the opportunity to participate in interactive planning scenarios. No previous global health or healthcare experience is required.
