The main objective of this course is to introduce students to the complexities of global health project implementations and the importance of leadership on this issue. Students will learn how leaders have overcome challenges faced in the operationalization of complex health interventions, foreign policy, and working with key stakeholders and organizations in this context. They will be exposed to real-world cases in global health leadership. Students will learn from, and interact with, world-renowned leaders from around the world through a series of guest lectures delivered via real-time videoconferencing.
This course aims to provide students with an opportunity to work with peers across institutions and regions to develop and hone skills in cultural competency (in addition to an expanded professional network), and help students
- identify key trends and issues working in global health context,
