Course Summary

This highly intensive 3-week post-graduate certificate course is an executive/senior level professional development programme of value to health, management and social development specialists working in government, non-government and academic settings worldwide. It provides emerging national, regional and international consultants with an opportunity to enhance and improve their professional knowledge and skills in the provision and management of consultancy services within the context of international health and deliver technical assistance that is robust, evidence-based and grounded in the reality of resource-poor settings. This course aims to mirror the reality of working as an international health consultant and has a very strong emphasis on developing practical hands-on skills with a focus on both individual and team working for delivering successful consultancies. This course aims to: Understand the context of key global initiatives and new developments in international health in your role as a consultant; Demonstrate the skills required to work as an international consultant; Describe the international health consultancy process and its management; Deliver successful consultancies.

Many of our alumni have held mid and senior level position in health ministries, universities, hospitals and INGOs and have used this course as a way of moving into consulting as free lance consultants or in setting up or strengthening their own consultancy companies. This programme is designed to enhance the ability of emerging consultants and practising consultants to successfully apply for and win both short-term and long-term consultancy work. It also aims to enhance their skills in effectively managing consultants and consultancy programmes, conducted in resource-constrained countries. This course is also highly relevant to those wanting to work in a volunteer role in international development.
