It will be touching on the fields of infectious diseases, migration, inequality, water/sanitation, appropriate technology, tropical surgery, postcolonial and gender studies, anthropology - to name a few.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

he aim is to deploy the potential of the manifold disciplines involved in global health and draw from the pre-existing body of experience of their professionals based locally or abroad - and access these to the students. This should provide a ground for further endeavors and increase the sensitization and learning curve with respect to humanitarian dilemmas while challenging the own position and expecting the unexpected. The previously mentioned is geared towards avoiding the constant recurrence of common pitfalls and unnecessary frustrations while working towards an eye-level interaction in international encounters beyond scratching the surface.

guest lectures with discussions (most probable online), supported by audio-visual material, thematic focus:
- presenting internationally active unconventional initiatives in global health
- basic introduction to global health
- analysis of practical examples and pitfalls from the field (surgical / medical /social / technical...)
- aid dependency and humanitarian dilemma
- critical reflection on humanitarianism and development aid
- inter/transdisciplinary approach towards shelter, access to food, water and sanitation and their impact on health - and mitigation strategies
- international players and institutions in essential surgical care and global health
- access to up to date information resources and preparation for missions
