developing health course - dhc

Dates: 12-24 July 2020, London School of Theology, Northwood.

The course is designed to update, equip and inspire doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals who are committed to global health.

The course material emphasises the broader context of healthcare across the world and each day covers topics like global health, medicine, mental health, paediatrics, surgery and women's health. There are also a couple of sessions on problem solving in areas such as HIV, palliative care, managing an epidemic and emergency medicine.

Teaching is given in a Christian context but participants of other faiths and none are welcomed and have benefited from the course in previous years.
