Call for Applications: Certificate in Global Health

Would you like to develop or enhance your skills in the area of global health?  The UW–Madison Center for Global Health invites graduate and health professions students and mid-career professionals to consider applying for the Certificate in Global Health, a collaborative offering of UW faculty from the Schools of Medicine and Public Health, Nursing, Pharmacy, Veterinary Medicine, and the Division of International Studies.   Through a 9-credit program that includes a global health field experience, the certificate prepares candidates to address health issues that transcend national boundaries, with an emphasis on health and disease in developing countries.  The program is based in the Department of Population Health Sciences of the UW School of Medicine and Public Health and is administered by the Center for Global Health.  Applications are being accepted until April 15.

Available as a Graduate Certificate to professional students in the health sciences and graduate students in health-related fields, and as a Capstone Certificate to health care practitioners and persons who have a BA or BS in a health-related field, the Certificate in Global Health program meets the needs of both traditional and non-traditional students with an interest in global health.  Recognizing that candidates may want to develop global health skills while continuing with full-time employment, the core courses are offered outside of the workday and are web-enhanced for easy access to course materials and increased opportunities to interact with faculty and students.  Read more about the current students and graduates from the Certificate program.

A detailed description of the certificate and an application form are available on the Center for Global Health Web site.
