The Global Health Delivery Project is a joint initiative of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard University. We research and write case studies about what works in health care delivery and run courses for global health professionals. Our mission is to create a global network of professionals dedicated to improving the delivery of value-based health care.
GHDI is a rigorous, non-degree summer program that trains public health leaders and health practitioners through a curriculum of epidemiology, management science and global health delivery, enabling them to effectively design and manage programs that improve health outcomes for the populations they serve.
The program is intended for mid-career health professionals who seek training in health care delivery concepts and skills. Applicants should have a demonstrated commitment to health and experience in health organizations, with a substantial background in health care or a related field. Practitioners, policy leaders, and administrators are all strong candidates for the program. International candidates are encouraged to apply. Current undergraduates are not eligible to participate.
Participants take three courses, which are also part of a new, separate Master of Medical Sciences in Global Health Delivery (MMSc-GHD) degree-program offered through Harvard Medical School.
2022 Course Updates
Our faculty has been deeply involved in global COVID-19 response, and our course content will reflect the impact of the pandemic on care delivery and management processes in the US and globally. In 2022 the program will be delivered virtually.
