Based on what many of the experts in this group have said in this forum, University of California at San Francisco along with PIH are putting on a 4-day Bootcamp in Global Health Delivery from September 30th-October 3rd 2015. Many of the participants in this forum may find this Bootcamp useful so I thought I would share more details. Please see below. There are a few scholarships for our international colleagues that may require some financial assistance to participate.
Announcing UCSF Bootcamp for Global Health Care Delivery
September 30th - October 3rd 2015 in San Francisco, California. The UCSF Global Health Core is offering a Continuing Medical Education (CME)/ Continuing Education (CE) immersion program for early to mid-career health professionals interested in serving globally and committed to incorporating global health care into their career path.
Taught by over a dozen experienced global health experts, the Bootcamp will use hands-on small group workshops and simulations to teach health system design and delivery, value chain mapping, leadership training, ethics and quality improvement principles tailored for resource-constrained settings. In addition, participants will have ongoing opportunities for longitudinal mentorship for one year following the Bootcamp.
Past Bootcamp faculty have included Ambassador Eric Goosby, former head of PEPFAR, Joia Mukherjee, CMO of Partners in Health, Raj Panjabi, Founder of Last Mile Health,Tina Brock, UCSF School of Pharmacy, Paul Farmer, founder of Partners in Health and International colleagues from Haiti and Liberia to lead small group sessions and case-based scenarios.
The President of the World Bank, Jim Kim, MD has said “the barrier to global health care delivery is not necessarily funding or knowledge of how to deliver health care: it is the ability to implement.” The ability to implement in resource poor settings entails not only the will to serve, but also the expertise. The Bootcamp for Global Health Care Delivery will increase participants’ readiness for work in resource poor countries.
The Bootcamp for Global Health Care Delivery will be limited to 36 participants so early registration is encouraged.
