Introduction To The Course - Welcome

The Electives Network is launching a new Foundation course, for medical students and professionals to gain a comprehensive background in Global Health.


Welcome to the Foundation in Global Health home page!

We hope this course provides you with a comprehensive and well-rounded understanding of Global Health to support you in your medical career. We aim to cover a wide range of topics, to provide you with a breadth of understanding, from the global burden of non-communicable and infectious diseases to the theoretical approaches to addressing ethical issues within global health work. This is the first year we are running the course so any feedback or recommendations are very much welcome! We want to make sure that this course is student-centered and can be of benefit to you as you embark on your medical career. 

Please write any questions you may have about the course or the content in the box below. Having the questions and answers in one place will help to support other students who may also have a similar question.
