MSGH 480-DL : Global Health Leadership


Persistent and continued global health inequities and inadequate responses to emerging global health crises highlight major gaps in global health leadership and the need for effective global health leaders at all levels. This course is an introduction to global health leadership and presents leadership theories and practice at individual and organizational levels.
In this course, students will be introduced to Culturally Endorsed Leadership Theory (CLT). The course will examine principles of leadership and practical global health leadership skills for leading change and addressing problems in global health settings, including stakeholder engagement at all levels; developing strong partnerships, teamwork and collaborations; sociocultural awareness and effective communication. This course also explores individual leadership characteristics including adaptability, patience and humility.
At an organizational level, this course will examine how major Global Health organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO), Presidents Emergency Fund for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), Partners In Health (PHI) among others provide leadership and their effectiveness at leading change, addressing health inequities and improving global health.

Note: This course may be taken in lieu of Leaders 481-DL. Students may not take both Leaders 481-DL and MSGH 480.
