You can participate in this course as an independent participant or as part of a site with 5 or more people. Participating as a site group provides a forum for discussing course concepts and applying them to local context and customs. If you are participating independently, the online discussion boards provide a forum for these types of discussion.
The course is taught in English. Participants should be comfortable with written and spoken English.
The course is aimed toward public health and healthcare professionals. To be admitted to the course you must have a Bachelor’s-level degree or equivalent experience in a health-related field.
Please note that the first offering of the course will be a pilot, thus enrollment is limited.
If part of a site group, your site coordinator will manage your group's enrollment fee. You may be asked to contribute towards this site fee.
If an independent participant, you will be invoiced based on details and preferences you note in your application. OECD/LMIC rates are based on your current location. Invoices are sent soon after the application period is over.
|Site Group Enrollment||Shipped Certificate (to site coordinator)|
|OECD Site Groups||5-15 people: $199 USD per person; 16-40 people: $3000 USD|
|LMIC Site Groups||5-40 people: $1500 USD|
For site groups made up of participants from a high-income country (OECD), the fee is determined by how many people are in your group. For groups of 16-40 people, the fee is $3000 USD. However, for smaller groups (OECD), we offer a discounted rate of $199 USD per person.
For site groups made up of participants from a low-middle income country (LMIC) we further discount the site rate down to $1500 USD for groups of at least 5 people (with a cap of 40 people for this course).
For site groups that may have a mix of both LMIC and OECD participants, the fee is based on the LMIC rate (of $1500 USD) plus $199 USD per OECD participant. However, if it is more economical, a flat rate of $3000 USD is also an option. Please inquire with us if you have questions about the fees at your site.
