In-Person Global Health Course


Offered each May in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the in-person global health course provides intensive training ideal for any physician or healthcare provider who serves a global mobile population, such as immigrants, refugees or international travelers. One of only 17 courses offered worldwide, ours is the only program of its kind offered in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

The in-person course is comprised of didactic lectures, case presentations, classroom discussions, simulation scenarios and laboratory sessions.

Intended Audience

  • Medical students, resident physicians, and fellows
  • Local, national and international practicing and retired physicians
  • Graduate nursing students, registered nurses, licensed nurse practitioners
  • Physician assistants, veterinarians, public health professionals and active United States military personnel


Although not required, it is recommended that all seven Online Global Health Course modules be completed prior to participating in the live course.

Participation in the in-person course partially fulfills the hands-on requirements to sit for the biannual American Society of Travel Medicine and Hygiene (ASTMH) examination that leads to a Certificate of Knowledge in Clinical Tropical Medicine and Travelers' Health (CTropMed®).
