Global Health Planning and Management Program Description
The proposed Master of Applied Science program in Global Health Planning and Management builds on the strength of the Bloomberg School, which provides opportunities for advanced training, focuses on both local and global issues, and prepares students to address public health problems through multidisciplinary approaches that apply the latest scientific knowledge. Students will have an opportunity to learn from and interact with faculty who have both research and practical experience in global health policy making, program design and evaluation and advocacy. The program will equip students with the necessary tools to anticipate and directly engage in the critical role of the global health professional and organization in public health advocacy and practice. <br> <br>The program is primarily intended for early to mid-career professionals practicing or planning to practice in developing countries and interested in expanding their global health skills and knowledge. The program can be completed entirely with online courses, allowing greater educational access to a wider range of students. The program will provide an opportunity for education and training for mid-career health professionals working in low and middle income countries. Delivering the degree in a fully online format will allow greater accessibility for participants from the U.S. and around the world. <br>
