Overview:

Many of the skills needed in Global Health are not taught in traditional health professional curricula. Though many health professionals have strong clinical skills, they lack some low-cost, low-technology skills that would allow their clinical experience and knowledge to be applicable in the global setting. These topics and skills include health system design, value chain mapping, leadership training, and ultrasound skills. Hence, the UCSF Global Health Core, within the division of Hospital Medicine, is fashioning a continuing medical education program to cover these topics using simulation, hands-on training, and workshops exploring effective global health delivery programs. The Kanbar Center at UCSF will be utilized to simulate real-life scenarios to improve global ethics and clinical training skills. The Global Health Bootcamp at UCSF will feature both an in-person intense four day as well as an opportunity for longitudinal mentorship for one-year following the course. Bootcamp attendance is limited to a group of 36 learners to allow for small group sessions, intimate workshops and active discussions. Experienced inter-professional UCSF faculty as well as international experts on Global Health Delivery will lead the sessions. This combination of education and mentorship will create the “thread” for continuity in coming years to further build dialogue amongst our Global Health Bootcamp network.

This is an intense four day course with world experts in global health delivery as well as an opportunity for longitudinal mentorship for a year following the course. 

This interdisciplinary, state-of-the-art education program is aimed at Nurses, Pharmacists, Physicians or any health care professional 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, and case studies in effective global health delivery programs led by experienced practitioners.

 “The Bootcamp gave me better grounding, both practically and theoretically. A really useful course.”  – 2015, Bootcamper
