CLTR 803 - Global Health in Research
This course is designed to introduce students to the practice of global health research, with a focus on but not limited to the conduct of research in developing countries. This is both a principles course, in which mastery is obtained through class lectures, readings, discussions, and research groups regarding health research, and a skills course in which mastery is obtained through the development of research proposals, the structured review of peer-reviewed health research articles, and the completion of the online CITI course for the protection of human subjects. The course emphasizes the scientific method as a mode of inquiry applied to quantitative, qualitative and mixed method research. It considers particular issues related to global health research, including: the use and interpretation of secondary data; cultural, linguistic, socioeconomic and other considerations in study design, data collection instruments, study methods, and analysis and interpretation of data; involvement of donors in funding and conduct of health research; opportunities for and considerations in collaborative global health research; and ethical issues and related to global health research.
