Global Health Systems & Services Program Description
The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate (P.B.C.) in Global Health Systems and Services is targeted to practicing health care professionals.  Its focus is to introduce basic global health systems and services to current health professionals interested in short or medium term consultation/projects overseas and subsequent opportunities.  This program will be implemented in partnership with the University of Maryland University College and their proposed Post-Baccalaureate Certificate (P.B.C.) in Global Health Management.  The two programs will share two courses.  Graduates will understand the different international health organizations and their roles in promulgating global health systems, policies and procedures and organizing health services.  They will also be able to implement and evaluate global health programs to maximize contributions to effective policy, enhanced practice, and improved and sustainable health outcomes.
