• Fall Elective: Fundamentals of Global Health 1 (BSCI 668)
  • Spring Elective: Fundamentals of Global Health 2 (BSCI 669)

These courses are established to follow the mission of Touro University to prepare students to deliver primary care to the underserved, to teach, to learn and to serve.
Health care and delivery of primary care is enormously affected not only by economical and political factors but also by the success of intervention programs which rely heavily on understanding the social and cultural undertones of the multitude of the communities served. We often observe a gap in primary care provision despite of the physician competency or willingness of the various societies to adapt and adopt new changes and challenges.
Through experts who visited the region and through study case presentation and group discussion, we hope to learn and prepare ourselves to understand and serve better some of the most underserved communities of the Developing World. The courses will present an overview of issues in global health from the viewpoint of many different disciplines

Courses are recommended for summer internships.
