An Online Learning Community and Course (October 2016 – March 2017)
Registration Deadline: September 30, 2016
The Global Health Scholars Program (GHSP) is centered around providing students with a dynamic approach to learning. The course will provide direct contact with leaders in the field, engaging and thoughtful discussions with fellow future healthcare professionals, and the opportunity to build connections with partnering global health organizations. The program will provide students with a multidimensional lens into a range of factors contributing to current global health priorities. Students will be taught how to directly analyze high profile initiatives, dissect infrastructures of differing healthcare systems, strengthen communication and cultural competency, and learn how to promote change and development in the field of global health.
The GHSP will run from October 2016 through February 2017. The program will administer bi-monthly webinars that scholars must attend. Specific considerations will be given for international students to accommodate for time sensitive needs. Webinars will be held on the first and third Tuesday of each month at 8PM EDT/EST and will be approximately two hours long. Scholars will be asked to complete pre-session assignments along with optional advocacy projects and a final project set forth by the course directors. Commitment will include one to two hours for each pre-session assignment and three to five hours per month for the final project.
- Attend all scheduled bi-monthly webinars; international participants will be provided with an alternate means to watch the recorded webinars and complete individual post-session reflection assignments.
- Complete all assignments provided by course directors prior to each webinar including: discussion posts, reading current literature and articles, written reflection, pre- and post- quizzes, and advocacy projects.
- Design a project and proposal that addresses a specific topic of interest in global health.
