SPPH 300: Working in International Health- Course Syllabus NOTE: THIS COURSE WAS COMPLETELY REDESIGNED FROM PREVIOUS YEARS, WITH NEW INSTRUCTORS AND COMPLETELY DIFFERENT CONTENT, APPROACH AND METHODS OF ASSESSMENT . This course is intended to introduce undergraduate students at UBC to some of the important practical knowledge, skills and attitudes needed for working in international health in an ethically sound manner that applies a global health orientation . The course will cover planning, delivery, evaluation and sustainability of projects and programs in low and middle-income countries, emphasizing the “big picture” issues related to North-South partnerships including ethical issues and the impact of real-world global economic and political forces on the success and sustainability of global health interventions. The principles developed by the Canadian Coalition for Global Health Research (CCGHR) will figure prominently in the course. The course is a hybrid online course plus 3 face-to-face sessions bringing all the students together. Over the course of the term, students will work (in teams of 6-8 students) to draft proposals for a specific global health project of their choice. A large component of the student evaluation will relate to how the CCGHR principles are integrated into this proposal. There will also be several presentations by experienced global health practitioners during the face-to-face sessions who will discuss their experiences working in global health with an emphasis on case studies and lessons learned in the field, applying the CCGHR principles.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
