Global Health Challenges
The Summer School in Global Health Challenges convenes students from a range of professional backgrounds and introduces them to the key concepts, determinants, opportunities and challenges in global public health - internationally as well as in Denmark. Through a mix of lectures, case studies, group work and workshops, this summer school will explore, explain and analyse many of the greatest challenges to current and future health. Gathering a truly international group of passionate students, the summer school aims to serve as a platform for networking, capacity-building and inspiration, thus empowering participants to become more effective health leaders, thinkers and change-makers.

Course content is at introductory level, and no previous experience with global health is required. However, as admission to the program is highly competitive, previous experience (through similar academic courses, field work, voluntary work, etc.) is an advantage.
The overall objective of this course is to provide students with the knowledge, skills and competences to understand the key concepts, determinants, opportunities and challenges in global public health - internationally as well as in Denmark.
