For the past five years, our partners at the Harvard School of Public Health and Harvard Medical School have brought together some of the brightest and most ambitious minds around the world for the Global Health Delivery Summer Intensive (GHDI), a month-long program for global health professionals. We’re happy to announce that the application process for the 2014 program is officially open. 

Over the month of July, participants will explore epidemiologic methods, applications of biostatistics, and the principles of health care delivery in resource-limited settings, among many other subjects. The non-degree program features three credit-bearing courses and draws on the expertise of various Partners In Health clinicians, including Drs. Paul Farmer and Joia Mukherjee.

The program is tailored specifically for mid-career professionals who have a demonstrated commitment to global health and experience in global health organizations, with a substantial background in health care or a related field.

In years past, PIHers from various sites have excelled in the GHDI, returning to their respective countries with fresh insight on how to strengthen the health system and improve services.

Applications will be accepted through Feb. 1, 2014, but program administrators encourage applicants to submit materials early if possible.
