The option to earn 6 Category 1 CME credits will cost you under $100. [Final cost will depend on the number of you who want the credits.]


More details about the program in a few months.

  • The speakers [and CME themes] will build around eminently- qualified global health presenters--who are “alumni” of the course over the decades.  Three have already confirmed.
    • Craig Spencer, MD - Ebola
    • Rajni Gunnala, MD - Eradication
    • Tom Kenyon, MD - Public Global Health
    • Tracy Carroll, PT, MPH - Chronic Disease
    • Ron Pust, MD - Clinical and Community Care
  • We will update you briefly on the future of the Arizona Course—and the new [in 2012] Global Health Distinction Track here in the College of Medicine.
  • You will still have a lot of time for socializing and reconnecting with your old [and making new] friends—and with Tucson in October [not in the Summer heat]
  • Registration forms will be posted this summer.  But in the meanwhile, you can email to let us know you are coming and if you want the CME.

We urge everyone [whether you are able to attend or not] to send us a one page personal update on what you have been doing, adding a picture or two.   We will display them by class year.   You can send these at any time to
