Course Description

What does it mean to work on global health? Many students are committed to the delivery of global health, but few are exposed to the core elements of program development, funding, implementation, and assessment. Our course is a practical primer in each of these areas. Using fundamental texts, our own experiences, a case-based approach, concrete exercises to develop technical skills, and guest speakers from the field, we will provide skill-building, guidance, and structure. We will honestly reflect on successes and challenges in this work and best-practices and pitfalls in global health practice. Students’ assignments will be discussed and critiqued as they would be in a work setting. This course will shed light on the complexity of global health delivery and key skills that can support success for students who envision pursuing work in global health domains or who want to better understand the field from the sideline.
