 Graduate Certificate in Global Health

This graduate-level certificate is an interdisciplinary program designed to promote student opportunities to diversify their experiences and education, while instilling awareness of the challenges posed by work in global health and low-resourced settings. The certificate symbolizes a student’s ability to navigate multiple institutional, social, and cultural contexts, all while reflecting the student’s awareness of themselves in the larger picture. This certificate is also a vital step in initiating and promoting joint training opportunities in global health between various departments and schools at Vanderbilt. The Graduate Certificate in Global Health is awarded to students who, in addition to their program’s requirements, complete at least 12 graduate credit hours of coursework in global health. All graduate students are eligible to enroll in the certificate.
