Program Overview

The Interprofessional Certificate in Global Health is designed for students and graduates of any discipline wishing to learn about health care in multiple settings around the world. This certificate introduces students to fundamental concepts of global health including social, political, and economic determinants of health. The students have the opportunity to explore disease management and learn how to empower people within their communities to manage their health.

Emphasis on a team approach, the use of technology, and employment of evidence based strategies serve to engage the student in the challenges of health care in a global arena.

The capstone project based on each student’s unique area of interest, will make this certificate appropriate for any student including Global Health, Public Health, Nursing, Health Administration, Allied Health, Medicine or others. This online Interprofessional Certificate in Global Health is completed in 12 semester credit hours. A field experience in the principle area of interest is expected in the final semester as part of the program requirements.
