Offered each May in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the live global health course provides intensive training ideal for any physician or healthcare provider who serves a global mobile population, such as immigrants, refugees or international travelers. One of only 17 courses offered worldwide, ours is the only program of its kind offered in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

The live course is comprised of didactic lectures, case presentations, classroom discussions, simulation scenarios and laboratory sessions.
