We have served in areas such as:

  • Haiti
  • Liberia
  • Rwanda
  • Tanzania
  • India
  • Burundi

Our Mission:

To address, advocate and advance, Global Health Equity transforming the paradigm of how American Physicians, Pharmacists, and Nurses engage in global health.

What Are We About?

This interdisciplinary, state-of- the- art education program is aimed at early career NursesPharmacists and Physicians committed to long term work in Global Health Delivery. This course emerges out of the insight that the barrier to global health care delivery is not necessarily funding or knowledge of how to deliver health care: it is the ability to implement.  The ability to implement in resource poor settings entails not only the will to serve but also the expertise.

Many of the skills needed in Global Health are not taught in traditional health professional curricula. These include multi-disciplinary topics such as Health System Design, Value Chain Mapping, Leadership training, Ultrasound skills, Servant Leadership, Quality Improvement Principles in resource constrained settings, and case studies in effective Global Health delivery programs led by experienced practitioners.

The Global Health Bootcamp at UCSF will feature both an intense four day course with over 20 world experts in Global Health Delivery as well as an opportunity for longitudinal mentorship for a year following the course with these leaders.   We will use the Kanbar Center at UCSF to simulate real life scenarios with expert education. The limited course size will allow for small group sessions, intimate workshops and active discussions.

When is the Bootcamp?

 The 1st annual four day Global Health Bootcamp will take place                                   October 2nd-5th, 2014.
