Global Health Certificate

Graduate and professional students at Yale (except those in the global health concentration at YSPH) may pursue the Graduate Certificate in Global Health as part of their degree program. This Certificate provides students with the opportunity to develop expertise in global health and includes recognition that a student has completed interdisciplinary study and integrative research to address fundamental and applied economic, political, social, cultural, and scientific issues relevant to global health.

Yale School of Public Health, Global Health Concentration
