This is an exciting time for public health, a time for unearthing new ways to approach old problems through breathtaking technological advances. Less than two decades ago the World Wide Web was an interesting toy; now it is the world’s central nervous system bringing together people and ideas in historically novel ways. Wireless technologies are rapidly transforming the ways people communicate – voice one day, text the next. Public health has barely scratched the surface of insight into how these, and future, technologies can change our research and our practices.
The Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health (MEZCOPH) houses the Global Health Institute (GHI), one of the many centers of excellence in education, research, and service of the University of Arizona’s Health Sciences Center. GHI is dedicated to finding evidence-based solutions to global health problems through the education and training of tomorrow’s global health leaders. It is a unique partnership that promotes collaboration between the University of Arizona, partner universities, organizations, and individuals around the world.
The Graduate Certificate in Global Health & Development is one of the flagship education programs of the GHI. Designed for professionals and those entering the field of global health, this online program is a flexible, academically rigorous option for those who wish to balance coursework and career, while maintaining an environment of utmost academic rigor. The course meets the need for skill enhancement for both foreign and domestic individuals who have limited time to pursue a campus-based full degree program.
Thank you for joining our global health learning community. We hope your participation in this Global Health Certificate program will give you the tools to expand the vistas of public health in your community and in our world!

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”
