CGH is launching a free online international travel prep course

Nina Martin | The Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health

Preparing for a trip outside the US? Don't know where to find information about vaccines or visas? Worried about how to relate when you don't speak the language?

The Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health (CGH) is now offering a free version of its international travel preparation course on Coursera. The objective of this course is equip both first-time and seasoned individuals with knowledge and resources to be well-equipped, sensitive travelers, researchers, and professionals abroad.

Since 2014, the Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health has offered this series of interactive lectures and case studies to its students and faculty who travel overseas for research or practice. These modules were developed based on feedback from surveys of returning students who spent months in low- or middle-income countries. The course has been popular with both students, faculty, and guest scholars alike. Participants are asked to complete a profile for their final project and include details on a country's economic, cultural, and historical background. 

Registration is free and open to everyone. Interested participants can purchase a certificate after they have completed the course for $29, which can be used as proof for future programs. You can find a link to the new course here

All classes are taught by Anna Kalbarczyk, MPH and Research Associate at the Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health, who currently teaches the regular term offerings. The first course begins on July 31st, and is offered every four weeks after. Register today!
