Beginning January 15, 2015, the Global Health Institute at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is accepting applications for the Graduate/Professional and Capstone Certificate in Global Health, a collaborative offering from the Schools of Medicine and Public Health, Nursing, Pharmacy, Veterinary Medicine, and the Division of International Studies. Through a 9-credit program that includes a global health field experience, the certificate prepares candidates to address health issues that transcend national boundaries, with an emphasis on health and disease in developing countries. The program is based in the Department of Population Health Sciences of the UW School of Medicine and Public Health and is administered by the Global Health Institute.
The Certificate in Global Health program is designed to assist traditional and non-traditional students with interests in global health. The Graduate/Professional Certificate is available to professional students in the health sciences as well as to graduate students in global health-related programs, such as engineering, education, area studies, and others. The Capstone Certificate is offered to individuals with a minimum of a Bachelors degree who are not currently enrolled in a UW program and have interest and/or experience in a global health-related field. Recognizing that candidates may want to develop global health skills while continuing with full-time employment, the Certificate in Global Health core courses are offered outside of the workday and are web-enhanced for easy access to course materials and increased opportunities to interact with faculty and students.
A detailed description of the certificate and an electronic application form are available on our website under the Education tab. The application deadline for 2015-2016 is April 15, 2015.
