An Invaluable Addition To My Public Health Training


“The INMED Professional Certificate Course in International Public Health is a very unique program, and an invaluable addition to my training in public health. The course doesn’t just address clinical treatment, but also puts medical service into the broader socio-economic context. Infrastructure, culture, politics, health behaviors and beliefs all play a large role in health, and these were addressed in a sensitive and insightful way. I was also impressed by the quality and experience of the speakers, who engaged we students in lively and relevant discussions. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to enhance their ability to care for people suffering from health disparities.”

bonnington-lucyUseful Even In Your Own Community 


“INMED’s Professional Certificate Course in International Public Health prepared me to lead my students in a community health assessment of the refugee population here in San Antonio, then to design interventions that were culturally appropriate, and to involve the leaders within that community to encourage participation. The principles of health leadership, the skills needed to plan interventions, and the attitudes and beliefs about health that vary by culture, are all covered in detail, and illustrated with the faculty’s experiences. This course has everything you need to make a difference, in far away places or even in your own community. It really was a terrific experience for me.”

Take Advantage Of This Wonderful Resource!


“Thank you to all staff of INMED for the excellent INMED Professional Certificate Course in International Public Health. Throughout our ten years in Kenya, as well as more years in southeastern Kentucky, we have focused on healthcare among the poor. As we prepare to return again to service overseas, the skilled faculty at the Intensive Course helped to refresh our minds and update us on relevant health issues for the 21st century. It was a blessing to meet so many other healthcare providers with hearts to serve the forgotten, especially the young professionals. We will encourage others to take advantage of this wonderful resource!”

thomas_eileenLife Changing Experience!


“The INMED Professional Certificate Course in International Public Health was fantastic! All the speakers were knowledgeable, the topics were inspiring, and the atmosphere was very supportive. I am looking forward to my first international service trip and will be working with my church to get involved in a medical ministry. As a nurse educator, I will share my new knowledge with my public health and global health students. I encourage not only advanced practice nurses but all nurses with an interest in serving the forgotten poor to take this course. Thanks so much for a life-changing experience!”

My Hard Heart Has Softened


“The INMED Professional Certificate Course in International Public Health ranks as one of the best continuing education experiences that I have ever enjoyed. The course is extremely comprehensive and well organized, and the speakers were uniformly excellent. I am certain that the intensive course will help many of us to launch successful careers in the field. Maybe most important of all, though, is the fact that the course helped me to gain a better understanding of the diseases of poverty. Because of this, my naturally hard heart has softened a bit, and I am in a much better place to effectively serve those in need.”

Invaluable Insight And Personal Encouragement


“I am grateful to INMED for the Professional Certificate Course in International Public Health, which has taught me the most important aspects of health in developing nations and resource-poor communities. The public health aspect of the course also provided invaluable insight into planning culturally appropriate health interventions and working with community leaders. I highly recommend this course to anyone wishing to increase their knowledge and skills in providing healthcare and community development among the needy and underprivileged. I also found the faculty and course participants to be an inspiration, both in their commitment to helping the less fortunate and also in their knowledge and their personal encouragement.”
