Information for non-USA applicants

We sometimes accept applicants from "developing countries" who, after looking at the content of the Arizona course and comparing it to what they already have learned in practice in their own country, still feel that it would be worth the time and expense to come to Arizona.

University of Arizona

Admission into this course is not an acceptance into the University of Arizona or any of its Colleges. There is a separate process for those who wish to pursue other courses of study at the University of Arizona. However, it is NOT necessary nor expected that you will seek admission to the Univ of Arizona in order to take this course in global health.

USA visitor's visa

You need to obtain a regular/visitor/tourist visa to come into the USA. You do not need a student visa. You will need a multi-entry visa if you chose to go into Mexico. If you wish, we can supply you by email with a printable letter stating your acceptance into this course. We are not able to help you with any other paperwork or funding.


In addition to your transportation expenses, your housing likely will be about $150 (US dollars) per week. Food and meals would be additional, of course. The syllabus is free and other books are about $75. The Course Fee is $475. The only current exception to this fee is for medical students enrolled in other LCME medical schools in the USA and Canada, since we have informal tuition-waiver agreements with LCME medical schools.
