Boston Children's Hospital - Global Health Program

Global Pediatric Clinical Skills Week
October 23–27, 2017

Global health as a field is complex, ever-changing and involves a diverse set of skills that spans across disciplines, including: clinical knowledge & skills, communication & advocacy, systems-based knowledge, teaching skills, problem-solving, critical thinking, and cultural sensitivity. Though many health professionals have strong clinical skills as applied in their home settings, they lack the clinical experience and knowledge to successfully apply those skills in a resource-limited setting. This course aims to improve the knowledge and skills of healthcare professionals engaged or planning engagement in pediatric clinical work in low or middle income countries. High-yield clinical topics and skills will be taught using an interactive curriculum of didactics, technical skill sessions, workshops, simulation, and hands-on training.
