Program description: 

The Global Health Certificate Program is for graduate students who want to acquire skills and a broad-based knowledge in global health. Global health is interdisciplinary, involving political, cultural, economic and environmental considerations that affect the health of communities and individuals around the world.
The goal of global health is to promote population health, safety and well-being, and to eliminate health and social disparities worldwide. Global health professionals develop innovative solutions to challenging health problems, particularly in resource-limited environments. This Program serves as a valuable qualification for those who want to work in global health internationally or in our globalized world. Global health needs professionals from multiple disciplines such as public health, nursing, medicine, international relations, engineering and business.
