The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) School of Nursing announced the new Global Health and Rural Community Health certificate programs. The online program will begin in fall 2015 and students who complete the program will be awarded a graduate certificate in either Global Health or Rural Community Health. Both of these programs are expected to prepare professionals with in-depth knowledge to enhance care to populations in the underserved rural and global health fields.
“Finding innovative ways to serve rural populations in health care is a challenge, but it is of the utmost importance that we find ways to meet these needs,” said TTUHSC President Tedd L. Mitchell, M.D. “West Texas has an undeniable global impact, and we need to take care of the rural populations that provide the food, fiber and fuel for the world. Similarly, by training health care professionals to meet the needs of medically underserved populations around the world, TTUHSC School of Nursing is proving to be critically important, not only regionally, but globally as well.”
Each certification program is an interprofessional, online graduate-level program that includes a 12-hour program completion with 67.5-hours of clinical experience in the principle area of interest (either rural or global health). The three courses are consecutive, building over three semesters (fall, spring and summer) and culminating in either a Global Health Certificate or a Rural Community Health Certificate based on an individualized plan of study.
TTUHSC School of Nursing is now accepting applications for the first cohort to begin fall of 2015.
