The Certificate in Global Health proposes to educate candidates through a three-part structured program each addressing essential aspects of global health through different constructs: course work, a global practicum, and a case/project report
I. Global Health Core (3 Credits) GHTH-601-W01 (N)
II. Global Health Fieldwork (3 Credits) GHTH-750 W01(N)
NOTE: Flight costs and in country expenses will be incurred by the traveler.
Upon successful completion of the coursework for the Certificate in Global Health, students will be eligible to undertake a Global Health Fieldwork Practicum at a preapproved supervised global health site. During the 2-4 week period, students will be oriented and integrated into the health center, the ancillary operations, or preventative health project relevant to the individual's professional background to deliver health services under the supervision of the on-site faculty. Students will be expected to identify and involve themselves with an ongoing preventative health initiative in the first week of the experience, engage the projects objectives and implement proposals in cooperation with the project coordinator. By integrating oneself in the clinical and/or preventative health projects of a resource-poor environment, a student will expectantly understand the humanitarian and altruistic ideals that form the principles of preventative medicine.
III. Global Health Research (3 Credits) GHTH-770 W01(N)
Students will be expected to design an approved research project in its entirety. An Institutional Review Board (IRB) application will be submitted by the student prior to undertaking any research. Upon returning, students will prepare an article on their research suitable for peer-reviewed publication. Students’ independent research will be approved on an individual case basis. All parts of research projects will be supervised by faculty of NYIT’s Center for Global Health.
Candidates who satisfactorily complete the course work will be allowed to proceed to the field work practicum and independent research project. Candidates who successful complete all components of the program will be eligible for a Certificate in Global Health.
