COMING SOON: Pillars of Global Health

Have you been looking for a flexible, competency-based virtual global health course? One that students can take at their own pace or can be embedded into a class, pre-departure training, or Global Health track?  

Building on CFHI’s thirty years of expertise in ethical community-based global health educational programs, CFHI and Aperian Global are very pleased to announce a new online course for students and academic institutions.
