Thanks for your interest in hosting the online course Introduction to Epidemiology for Global Health 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. (Note: Being part of a site is not required for participation in this course; those who are not part of a group can apply to take the course on their own -- as an independent participant -- when applications open for participants to apply.)
Site registration is a two-part process consisting of 1) Site Registration form and 2) Participant Application form. The Site Registration form is an application submitted by the person applying to coordinate the group for the course. The participant application form is what participants will submit later, when course applications open, indicating the site they're part of on their application. The site coordinator may also be a participant in the course (but they will need to apply separately as a participant when participant applications for the course open). 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 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).
- LMIC site fee is $1500 USD; see course page for additional details and cost information.
- *You can host more than one site, although if we reach our maximum capacity you may be limited to one site only
