Opens Your Eyes To The Breadth Of Opportunities 


“The INMED Professional Certificate Course in International Medicine & Public Health opens your eyes to the breadth of opportunities to serve marginalized people in culturally and economically appropriate ways. I enjoyed learning alongside course participants from the fields of pharmacy, nursing, and public health as we addressed the problems of creating sustainable health care and making ourselves available to the poor. I was challenged to think outside the clinical setting and to consider the social causes of poverty and ill health. I networked with service-minded movers and shakers in a way that may change the course of my career and my personal life!”

wilson_jenniferServing With Excellence


“As a Canadian family and emergency room physician working in Ghana on a yearly basis, I have a strong desire to improve my knowledge and my skills in international medicine. However, due to the demands my clinical work and raising a young family, most training opportunities in global health are not feasible. The INMED Professional Certificate Course in International Medicine & Public Health was an absolutely perfect fit for me. The online segments provided the flexibility I desired, and how refreshing were my like-minded classmates at the in-class segment. This course is extremely well organized and the INMED team was proactive in encouraging us along every step of the way.”

“This course provided excellent preparation for my later service at Vellore Christian Medical College & Hospital in India. Many of the diseases I encountered there had not yet been covered in my medical education, but the knowledge and skills I gained at the Professional Certificate Course in International Medicine & Public Health prepared me well. I was also encouraged to persevere in my path towards a career in international medicine by the many inspiring people I met during the course.

An Amazing Experience For A Medical Student


“Participating in the INMED Professional Certificate Course in International Medicine & Public Health as a medical student has been an amazing experience, reinforcing what was taught in school and bring it into the perspective of international medicine. The diseases and situations encountered in developing nations were illuminated by veteran lecturers – by people who have all lived and given their lives to the underprivileged of the world. The well-organized information, coupled with the hands-on experience fully gave me a grasp on what to expect when serving neglected communities. The INMED Course has already opened doors of opportunities to fulfill my yearning to practice international medicine.”

“The INMED Professional Certificate Course in International Medicine & Public Health challenged me to view disease management in a new perspective. The online portion of the course helped me delve deeper into not just the pathology of disease but also in the factors which make certain populations more vulnerable to diseases of poverty. The in-classroom, hands-on section allowed me to broaden my skills, meet amazing new people who are also very dedicated to alleviate suffering. This course provided me with not just a broader knowledge base but also the motivation to continue working with disadvantaged populations. I would recommend this course to anyone!”

frocker-susanExceeded My Expectations 


“As a pharmacist who regularly goes on medical missions to Ghana, I enrolled in the INMED Professional Certificate Course in International Medicine & Public Health to enhance my knowledge about diseases of poverty. This course exceeded my expectations: not only have I learned how to improve our treatment protocols, my understanding of primary healthcare and health systems has grown and I am inspired to do even more to help. I am excited about teaching the “Helping Babies Breath” program that I learned during the in-class session. I highly recommend this program to any pharmacist who has an interest in international medicine and global health.”

manimtim-winstonI Was Very Impressed 


“As a practicing neonatologist with special interest in global health, I was very impressed with the INMED Professional Certificate Course in International Medicine & Public Health. In addition to providing a review of the basic knowledge on tropical and infectious diseases affecting the world, it included topics on culture adaptation, ethical issues as well as community leadership and health promotion through community development. It was very comprehensive and the speakers were experts in their own fields. I would recommend this course to any health care professional who faces the challenges of bringing health care to the very sick, the disadvantaged and the impoverished people of the world.”

manzoni-diegoHelped Me Improve My Health Project In Ghana 


“Attending the INMED Professional Certificate Course in International Medicine & Public Health was extremely enriching for me, not only because of the clinical topics but also for wonderful people whose interest and experience resonate with my own. Sometimes I felt overwhelmed with all the information, but the teachers were excellent at giving us the basic concepts and practical application. I especially appreciated the cultural topics, for it is difficult to get this knowledge from books. Throughout the course, I identified improvements to make in our health promotion project in Ghana. I recommend the INMED International Medicine Intensive Course to all people interested in medical missions and serving others.”

Excellent In All Aspects

“How I thank God for entire INMED team. The Professional Certificate Course in International Medicine & Public Health has revived my medical thinking and again inspired me to serve my own people in Kenya. I learned so much about culture and epidemiology; different ways of building trust with people and being integrated into their community. The medical part was also well presented by all the professors. There was no better way than this course for me to get practical training in a short time. Clinical officers like myself will benefit from this course. INMED has become part of my story and the story of many whom I look forward to serving.”
