Global health is a diverse field of practice.  There are doctors, nurses and allied health professionals providing humanitarian assistance in refugee camps, performing surgery, consulting in remote village clinics, running immunization campaigns, and supporting community based rehabilitation teams.  This 9-hour mini-course will look at these different settings.  We will use case studies to examine global health in an interprofessional environment.

By the end of this mini-course, students will be expected to have:

  • an understanding of Global Health, in the local and international context;

  • developed an ethical framework for the use of social media and photography to be used as part of knowledge translation and community education;
