I've completed the first two courses so far and am now feeling well prepared to set out on a global health assignment anywhere in the world. The video interviews with people who have recently worked in remote areas offered lots of practical tips for planning and preparation. The experiences they shared and the websites they suggested were enormously helpful. Highly recommend!
