The Global Health Minor gives undergraduates an opportunity to become familiar with the major problems and policy issues in global health.
Students graduating with a minor in Global Health from the University of Washington will be able to demonstrate a basic understanding of:
•The burden of the most important health problems contributing to excess morbidity and mortality in developing countries and low-resource settings, including their magnitude and distribution and disparities in health status by gender, race, and economic class.
•Major historical, political, social, environmental, and economic determinants of adverse health in developing countries and low-resource settings in rich countries.
•Pathophysiology of the most prevalent infectious and chronic diseases and medical and public health approaches for prevention and treatment.
•Current and historic health programs and policies designed to address major health problems in low-resource setting and the roles of global health institutions, recommended levels of resources for implementation of interventions, and key barriers and challenges.
•How to analyze critically relevant topics in the popular press and in the Global Health literature.
By becoming knowledgeable in these core areas of global health, students should also be able to engage actively in efforts to improve health as global citizens.
