Global Health - McGill Summer Institute courses image

McGill University and McGill University Health Centre have strong research groups and centres working on TB, HIV and neglected tropical diseases. These Centres have a very strong track record of advanced courses and workshops that are offered every year, in topics such as tuberculosis research methods, TB diagnostics and tropical and parasitic diseases.

Starting in July 2015, under the aegis of the McGill Global Health Programs, several short courses on infectious diseases will be combined into a coherent, integrated “McGill Summer Institute in Infectious Diseases and Global Health.” Courses in the Summer Institute will feature internationally known faculty and bring together a diverse group of participants.
