UCSF Global Health Bootcamp
University of California San Francisco
The Global Health Bootcamp is an interdisciplinary, state-of-the-art education program that is aimed at early career nurses, pharmacists, physicians or any health care professionals committed to long term work in global health delivery. This course emerges out of the insight that the barrier to global health care delivery is not necessarily funding or knowledge of how to deliver health care: it is the ability to implement. Training includes multi-disciplinary topics such as health system design, leadership training, ultrasound skills, quality improvement principles in resource poor settings, and case studies on effective global health delivery programs led by experienced practitioners.
