Application deadline extended for Grad/Professional and Capstone Certificate in Global Health

The UW-Madison Global Health Institute has extended the application deadline for the Graduate/Professional and Capstone Certificate in Global Health to Thursday, April 30, 2015.

The Certificate in Global Health program is designed to assist traditional and non-traditional students with interests in global health. The Graduate/Professional Certificate is available to graduate students as well as professional students in the health sciences. The Capstone Certificate is offered to individuals with a minimum of a Bachelors degree who have interest and/or experience in a global health-related field. The program is based in the Department of Population Health Sciences at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health and is administered by the campus-wide Global Health Institute at UW-Madison.

Through a nine-credit program of preparatory course work and culminating in a global health field experience, students will be prepared to address health disparities in a context of cultural diversity. Certificate recipients may serve populations internationally or work among the increasingly diverse population of Wisconsin and the United States. Through core courses and electives, students may focus their studies on health promotion, detection and treatment of disease, prevention and management of outbreaks, health policy, environmental health, or other interdisciplinary topics.

A detailed description of the certificate and an application form are available on our website, under the Education tab.

The application deadline for 2015-2016 has been extended to April 30, 2015.
