The Introduction to Global Health & Development course calls for those with a heart to see communities thrive physically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually.
During the course, you will be immersed in a powerful combination of essential basic healthcare knowledge and community development training, with a focus on preventing illness, promoting holistic wellbeing, and empowering communities to develop their strengths.
Your course will start at our campus in Townsville, Australia where will you undergo 12 weeks of training before applying what you have learned during 10 weeks of outreach in Papua New Guinea. A short portion of your outreach may also be in Australia.
This public health-infused approach incorporates the World Health Organization’s Healthy Island Framework, with application to the Papua New Guinean context. These principles also apply more broadly in other nations.
On completion of this course you will have attained an Australian qualification for basic healthcare; Certificate III in Basic Health Care (HLT31215). The Certificate III in Basic Health Care program is suitable for people wishing to pursue a career in health with the qualification providing a good base of knowledge for many health care industries including ambulance, nursing, security, and Defence Force medical assistant.
Graduates of this course are well placed to step into a range of further training options including our Staff Internship in global health and development, program management and leadership.
