Disaster & Refugee Response: Global Principles & Practice

This course empowers participants to effectively engage with global response efforts through knowledge and application of life-saving and dignity-upholding measures as outlined in the internationally-used Sphere Handbook: Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Response. Interactive sessions contextualize universal standards, actions, and indicators in four core life-saving areas: health, food security and nutrition, shelter and settlement, and WASH. Open to all who are interested, this program will greatly benefit humanitarian relief workers, medical professionals, and social workers.

Teaching Healthcare Professionals in a Global Setting

Healthcare professional education is the new frontier of medical missions. CHSC partners with CMDA MEI, African Mission Healthcare, CAAP, In His Image, MedSend, and PAACS to provide training for those teaching or planning to teach in international medical schools, residencies, and other healthcare training programs. The courses and workshops help participants provide quality academics while navigating cultural considerations.

Course reviews:

“I wish I had taken this course 10 years ago, before I went to work (training medical students and residents in the US and overseas). I would have been much more effective and much more comfortable.”

“I really appreciate a mission that puts priority on training and providing useful and practical tips.”
