Global Health Bootcamp: A Continuing Medical Education Course for Those Passionate about Global Health

Many of the skills needed in Global Health are not taught in traditional health professional curricula. Though many health professionals have strong clinical skills, they lack some low-cost, low-technology skills that would allow their clinical experience and knowledge to be applicable in the global setting. These topics and skills include health system design, value chain mapping, leadership training, and ultrasound skills. Hence, the UCSF Global Health Core, within the division of Hospital Medicine, has fashioned a continuing medical education program to cover these topics using simulation, hands-on training, and workshops exploring effective global health delivery programs. The Kanbar Center at UCSF will be utilized to simulate real-life scenarios to improve global ethics and clinical training skills. Attendance is limited to a group of 36 learners to allow for small group sessions, intimate workshops and active discussions. Experienced inter-professional UCSF faculty as well as international experts on Global Health Delivery will lead the sessions.

The UCSF Global Health Core, within the Division of Hospital Medicine at UCSF, has designed a continuing medical education program using simulations, hands-on training, and workshops to explore effective global health delivery with today’s leaders in global health.

The course is open to all health professionals who have the will to serve, and who are searching for the skills needed in global health that are not taught in traditional health professional curricula. Join us in multi-disciplinary sessions that cover topics such as health systems design, value chain mapping, ultrasound skills, and human rights and ethics.
