Diploma in Tropical Medicine and International Health

The aim of the Diploma in Tropical Medicine and International Health offered by the Department of Infectious Diseases and Tropical Medicine is to improve health care for populations in low- and middle-income countries by training international health professionals in international health topics, bedside-teaching, laboratory practice, management and communication as well as research methods. Besides emphasizing an interactive teaching approach, we also strive to deliver lectures that cover contemporary research in Tropical Medicine and International Health including critical appraisal and discussion of topics.
