Summer Institute Courses

McGill Global Health Summer Institute

McGill University and McGill University Health Centre have exceptionally strong research groups and centers working on TB, HIV, and neglected tropical diseases. These Centers have a track record of advanced courses and workshops that are offered every year, in topics such as tuberculosis research methods, TB diagnostics, and tropical and parasitic diseases. Since July 2015, under the aegis of the McGill Global Health Programs, several short courses on infectious diseases were combined into a coherent, integrated “McGill Summer Institute in Infectious Diseases and Global Health.” Courses in the Summer Institute will feature internationally known faculty, and bring together a diverse group of participants.

2021 will be the McGill Summer Institute in Infectious Diseases and Global Health’s sixth year. To date we have held 30 courses and hosted 2,278 participants!
