Virtual Global Health Elective
Participation in short-term global health training/service programs has the potential to generate unique ethical dilemmas for which medical students/residents and host communities are often ill-prepared. As the number of medical students traveling to resource-limited countries steadily increases, so too does the demand for better preparing these individuals for the ethical issues and challenges of short-term global health volunteerism.
In this course, students will study the ethics of global health volunteerism through numerous topics from a variety of perspectives and will complete 40 hours of Spanish classes with personalized lessons taught by a native-Spanish speaker through online video conferencing.
This course is an online alternative opportunity to the ENLACE Global Health Elective, allowing students the opportunity to seriously engage in an important global health issue and dedicate time to learning/improving Spanish skills when international travel is not a viable option. Open to any level of Spanish speakers– from beginners to advanced.
