What is the GHDI Virtual program experience like?

GHDI 2023 will be our fourth virtual course year. In July 2020, 36 students participated fully in coursework, mentorship and community-building. Student reviews for each course and the overall GHDI 2020 experience were stellar with 99% percent of curricular and experience evaluation categories rated excellent or very strong. 

The program coursework is very intensive and fast-paced. Students take three courses each day, Monday through Friday, from approximately 8:30 AM – 1:30 PM EST. Because students come from many time zones we work to schedule in a way that is as convenient as possible across regions. 
The three GHDI required courses are:

  • Epidemiologic Methods for Global Health (EPI505)
  • Introduction to Global Health Care Delivery (GHP532)
  • Management Practices in Health Care Delivery (GHP555)

In the past, students have spent approximately three hours per night completing homework and preparing for class the next day. We recommend that students minimize scheduling other commitments.
The program is an excellent professional development and networking experience. GHDI guest faculty and students are diverse and accomplished in their respective areas.
