Site Process: Fundamentals of Global Health Research

Thanks for your interest in hosting the online course Fundamentals of Global Health Research (formerly called "Conducting Research Responsibly") at your location.

Our courses incorporate a 'site-based model'. A site is a group of participants in the same geographic location or at the same organization that enroll in the course together, and connect face-to-face with other learners. Being part of a site is not required for participation in this course. 

Site registration is a two-part process consisting of 1) Site Registration form and 2) Participant Application form. Each site must have a Site Coordinator who submits a Site Registration Form alerting us of their interest in hosting the course for a group. The Site Coordinator may also be a participant in the course (they will need to apply separately as a participant). There is no financial obligation made by submitting an application.

Important notes regarding this course offering:

  • Sites can have 5-40 participants
  • Participants should be able to attend at least 3 out of 4 site meetings
    (In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we urge you to follow your local health guidelines about the safety of in person gatherings for groups of your size, and we encourage you to practice an abundance of caution by hosting site meetings remotely)
  • Site fee is $1500
  • You can host more than one site, although if we reach our maximum capacity you may be limited to one site only

In order to apply to the course as a site coordinator, please:
