  • Certificate in Global Health

    Overview

    Drexel's accredited online Certificate in Global Health prepares students, professionals, and practitioners to work in changing environments and with diverse populations. Students will be prepared to respond competently to health challenges that transcend geographic and cultural boundaries, as well as identify and analyze factors that impact disparities in health status, health resources, and access to the health information and services, particularly for marginalized and vulnerable groups.

    Field Experience

    The program combines online coursework with an integration module and field practicum that includes a 2-3 week supervised experiential (and cultural immersion) global health field experience and study tour that takes place in collaboration with a local, international or community-based global health organization in locations across the globe.  View an interactive map of some of the international research, program and other work of Drexel University's School of Public Health.
