Global Health Seminar

The Global Health Seminar is a year-long weekly elective course intended for students in the health professions to develop an understanding of the key aspects of global health research and practice. The course contains two components: thematic lectures and modules. Over the course of the fall semester, lectures will focus on the social and biological determinants of health and global health practice in the field. The modules for the coming year will focus on non-communicable diseases. Sessions are on Monday, from 5:30 - 7 pm in TAC N203.

Some of the lectures and discussions have been recorded. Click here to see a listing of the podcasts.

Topics in Global Medicine Course

The Topics in Global Medicine Course is a case-based seminar designed for students in all of the health professions programs (physician associate (PA), nursing, epidemiology and public health (EPH), and medicine) as well as residents interested in tropical medicine.

The goal is to provide participants with a broad knowledge base in current globally important health issues. Each session is case-based and clinically relevant, though medical diagnosis and management are not the priority for this course. Importantly, the course provides a forum for interactive discussions of the health issues that pose unique challenges in resource-limited settings. Most sessions are collaborative - the faculty person is paired with a student and/or resident and the team works together to research and present the topic. The course is held on Thursday evenings from 5:30 -6:30 pm in Hope Memorial Building, Room 110. A light dinner is provided.
