Project Management in Global Health
So much of your work in global health is project based, whether you’re training healthcare workers implementing an intervention, adopting a health information system or evaluating for quality improvement. Good project management is crucial for the success of these endeavors.
By the end of the Project Management in Global Health course, you’ll learn the fundamentals of project management, including conducting needs assessments, creating planning and implementation documents, managing project resources, transitioning the project to local agencies, and evaluating the project.
Unfortunately, projects don’t always go as planned. Funding may be cut, the scope may grow, priorities may shift, key team members may leave, or a host of other unexpected changes. This course gives practical tips, tools, and techniques for how to address unexpected challenges that inevitably arise. These come from experts from all over the world who have spent years managing global health projects and share lessons they have learned.
This online, graduate-level course has video lectures, case studies, readings, discussion forums, quizzes, and practical assignments. The course is taught in English.
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 most useful for public health and healthcare professionals who have some experience in management and who wish to enhance their skills working with people and organizational resources. The course is less well suited to individuals in entry-level positions.
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
|5-11 people: $300 USD per person; 12-50 people: $3500 USD
|LMIC Site Groups
|5-50 people: $1750 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 12-50 people, the fee is $3500 USD. However, for smaller groups (OECD), we offer a discounted rate of $300 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 $1750 USD for groups of at least 5 people (with a cap of 50 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 $1750 USD) plus $300 USD per OECD participant. However, if it is more economical, a flat rate of $3500 USD is also an option. Please inquire with us if you have questions about the fees at your site.
