The University of California, San Francisco’s Department of Emergency Medicine and Institute of Global Health Sciences’ Global Nursing and Affiliate programs are pleased to announce the “Building a Career in Global Health Conference 2023” to be held August 18-20th at the UCSF Mission Bay Conference Center in San Francisco. The course will draw from the distinguished Global Health faculty at UCSF and include visiting experts domestically and internationally.

The course program is designed for all healthcare practitioners including physicians, nurses, students and trainees, and other allied health providers interested in starting careers in global health or integrating global health into their existing practices. The two-day program will include lectures and workshops designed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills to successfully navigate domestic topics, such as project funding and job negotiation, and international topics, such as partnership building and program development. The conference will include an evening event on Night 1 where participants will have time to network with others with similar interests and experience. There will also be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and interact with global health experts.

An optional third day (August 20th) may be added and will include a WHO Basic Emergency Care (BEC) intro course or clinical skills course specific to working in resource-limited settings.
If you would like to sponsor a trainee or attendee from a low- or low-middle income country, please contact us at GlobalHealthConf@ucsf.edu.
This course will take the place of UCSF’s prior “Building a Career in Global Emergency Medicine Course.”
