Learn more about the Graduate Certificate in Global Health -


The Graduate Certificate is an interdisciplinary graduate-level certificate offered by the Vanderbilt Institute for Global Health (VIGH) through Vanderbilt University and is a vital step in initiating and promoting joint training opportunities in global health between various departments and schools at Vanderbilt.

The Graduate Certificate in Global Health program is designed to equip students with analytic and problem-solving skills that can be applied to current and emerging global health challenges; to prepare students for internationally-focused careers in academia, government agencies, non-governmental organizations, immigrant health agencies, philanthropic foundations, and industry; to help students assess public health challenges within international cultural and socioeconomic contexts; to instruct students in the fundamental principles of research, planning, and management methodology in resource-constrained settings; to facilitate student synthesis and analysis of global health data from existing and de novo sources; and to ensure student acquisition of core competencies in global health care and prevention, including the mastery of a basic vocabulary in these disciplines.
