The UBC SPPH Continuing Education Program delivers professional development for health professionals with a commitment to maintaining and enhancing professional competence.

First of its kind in western Canada and offered since 2014, we developed the Tropical and Geographic Medicine Intensive Short Course to provide health professionals with training on a clinical approach to the evaluation and management of tropical diseases. A laboratory component in the curriculum allows learners to acquire practical laboratory skills to identify parasites important for the diagnosis of tropical disease. An important element in this course is the inclusion of a public health focus on management of tropical diseases including outbreaks.

As at July 1, 2018 our Outdoor Air Quality and Health and the Air Quality Health Index online course will be offline as we transition from Blackboard Learn (UBC Connect) to Canvas, UBC’s new learning management system. If you are interested in this course and wish to be notified when it is ready to launch in Canvas (expected in early fall 2018), please contact us.
