Global Health: Clinical & Community Care Course

  1. Element 3 of the Global Health Distinction Track

    Open to all interested in Global Health. You do not need to be enrolled at the University of Arizona or a part of the Global Health Distinction Track to participate in this course.

The University of Arizona global health course, begun in 1982 and revised annually, is a multidisciplinary, case-based, problem-solving course preparing clinical students and residents for health care experiences in developing countries. Other health professionals with clinical experience in any medical or public health field may apply as well.

This is a full-time (80 class hours), interactive course, with an optional medical/cultural weekend field trip. Faculty are all experienced clinicians from several departments at the University of Arizona or elsewhere. Visiting medical students receive up to four weeks' elective credit at their home school (which must also arrange the actual overseas preceptorship).

We believe this is one of the most specific and useful preparations for North American senior medical students, residents, and public health students planning a field experience in a developing nation. Our commitment is to evidence-based clinical and public health - with most of the content derived from WHO and international sources.

Open to medical students in years 3-4 and primary care residents and physicians. Also open to other health care clinicians.

You don't need to be enrolled at the University of Arizona or a part of the Global Health Distinction Track to participate in this course. Health professionals with clinical experience in any medical or public health field may apply as well.
