The 12 credit Graduate Certificate in Global Health aims to improve understanding of topics related to emerging global health issues such as sustainability of food and water resources, disease transmission and management, epidemics, and health care delivery in compromised settings.
Global health is an interdisciplinary field that relies on a broad knowledge base to create innovative solutions to challenging health problems in resource poor settings. This program provides graduate students an opportunity to complete one required and three elective graduate courses in global health. Electives include discipline specific courses and study abroad opportunities.
Students who complete the UNF Graduate Certificate in Global Health will be able to:
- Apply understanding of a rapidly changing global healthcare system, the policies driving change, and the impact on diverse healthcare settings
- Effectively articulate the basic principles of public health and the major determinants of global public health
- Examine the distribution of health and disability around the world and realize the individual, social, and institutional factors that affect the burden of disease
- Compare the essential components of global health programs and key responses to poverty that can potentially minimize the global burden of disease in developing countries
