The Global Health graduate certificate is offered in a fully online distance education format.
The global health certificate offers the student the opportunity to explore health care issues that exist in developing countries and multi-ethnic populations in industrialized nations.
This 12-credit certificate enhances health care providers’ knowledge of the health, socio-economic and political environments that affect the health status of individuals and population groups. The certificate may be taken independently and upon completion may serve as an entry to Master’s degree studies for those who may want to do so. Alternatively, the certificate may be taken as part of an MPH degree in any of the degree program areas.
The faculty includes internationally recognized practitioners and scholars with significant experience in international health.
