BWH Harvard CME course: Understanding Global Healthcare Delivery June 9-10, 2017
The Brigham and Women’s Hospital Division of Global Health Equity is offering for a CME course in Global Healthcare Delivery on June 9-10, 2017. CME credit will be granted through Harvard Medical School.
We are extremely enthusiastic about the content of the course which will bring together expert Global Health faculty from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Content will be taught by Paul Farmer, MD, PhD, Joe Rhatigan, MD, Joia Mukherjee, MD, MPH, Daniel Palazuelos, MD, MPH and Michelle Morse, MD, MPH and others.
The program is designed to give practicing clinicians an introduction to best practices in the provision of health services in low-resource settings globally. The course will discuss the biosocial determinants of health and disease and explore how programs that deliver healthcare in low-resource settings address these factors to improve the health of the communities they serve.
Topics covered in the program will include: the global burden of disease, HIV prevention and treatment, global tuberculosis control, non-communicable disease prevention and treatment, the role of community health workers in health service delivery, global health policy and human resource capacity building. The course will be taught through lectures and interactive case discussions that seek to provide participants with a rich understanding of the complexities of health care delivery in low-resource settings.
The program will include two days of course work and case discussions as well as a “meet the faculty” reception.
