Program description - September 2024

Global public health management plays a crucial role in safeguarding communities' health and well-being, promoting equity and sustainability, and preventing the spread of diseases across international borders. It involves various stakeholders and requires coordination efforts of multiple levels of government, domestic and international organizations, and for-profit and not-for-profit healthcare institutions.

This 1-year graduate certificate is designed for graduates of health and life sciences and biological sciences and biotechnology programs who wish to improve the health and well-being of populations on a global scale. Its comprehensive curriculum prepares you to tackle health issues at a high level, including disease prevention, health promotion, and health policy. Through a lens of equity and sustainability, you will explore social determinants of health, disease burden, climate change, and the impact of globalization on public health. Global health policy and governance will be explored, with a focus on emergency preparedness.
