About Global Health Online Courses:
Now in their fifth year, the two virtual global health courses have four to five APRU member universities signing on live every week for 10 weeks. These graduate-level courses examine bioethics and global health leadership from multiple disciplines and cultural orientations. They afford students the opportunity to interact with world-renowned guest speakers, participate in small group discussions around real-world case studies, and work in international teams on a group project.
In this semester we have guest speakers coming from the following member universities:

Testimonial from our former student:
"This course not only presented interesting subject materials, but gave me the unique opportunity to interact with students from all over the world. The logistics of bringing everyone together from several different time zones made for a once-in-a-lifetime experience in which I was able to see how international students think and learn.”
