New UW Graduate Certificate Program in Women, Adolescent, and Child Health

Dear Students,
We are pleased to announce that we will begin accepting applications for the Graduate Certificate in Global Health of Women, Adolescents, and Children this Winter Quarter and officially enrolling in Spring 2012. The curriculum of the certificate program is designed to give students a base of knowledge they can draw from when faced with a variety of issues in resource poor settings. More information about this graduate certificate program can be found on the Global WACh website.
If you would like to get a head start on the program, GH/HSERV 544 is the flagstone course in the program and provides a strong base of knowledge from which to build. This class is only offered in Winter quarter and there are spots available for the upcoming session. See below for more information regarding GH/HSERV 544 and see the attached flier for information regarding the Global WACh Certificate Program.
GH 544 (jointly offered as HServ 544) is open for registration for Winter quarter. This is a great class for those who plan to work in maternal and child health in resource limited settings. The course is especially great for those who have had at least some work experience in such settings.
Course description: This 3 credit course provides an overview of the critical health problems of women and children in resource limited settings and examines programmatic interventions and practical strategies that respond to those problems. The course covers MCH proposal development, community involvement and program implementation and management.
