Management Track

Track Summary

To be prepared to face the daunting international health challenges of today, global health professionals must possess a breadth of knowledge and balance a wide range of roles and competencies. In addition to having a sophisticated understanding of the clinical realities of global medicine, they must have a systematic, business-focused approach to the planning and execution of international healthcare facilities, organizations, and projects.

To address this growing need, the Management Track offers students a chance to incorporate courses on finance, management, leadership, and marketing with coursework in basic medical concepts and treatment, diseases and their risk factors, maternal and child health, and cultural competence.
