Building Global Health Leadership
Welcome to the main page for the International Network for Doctoral Training in Health Leadership!
Our community of faculty, students and staff is growing as we work to build a cooperative network of partner programs dedicated to accelerating the pace and reach of urgently needed doctoral-level leadership training for senior health professionals around the world. Member schools share curricula, distance learning technology and school resources. They function as a well-coordinated network in which faculty teach across universities and students may take courses or portions of courses from schools other than the schools in which they are enrolled. By addressing the critical need for global leadership development within the senior public health workforce, we hope to contribute substantially to efforts to improve the health of people worldwide.
