Native Public Health Course(s) for Schools of Medicine

Native Public Health Course(s) for Schools of Medicine

To plan, develop, and provide a course(s) in Native American public health for schools of medicine.  This course will prepare students for their professional careers working with American Indian and Alaska Native populations.

AAIP is collaborating with expert consultants to establish a Curriculum Development Team (CDT) of scholars in medicine, public health, and AI/AN culture to determine all aspects of the course and its implementation into both the college of medicine infrastructure including the key elements of the course(s), implementation, and format(s) (e.g. Web-based or classroom based, continuing education or primary coursework or certificate program).

AAIP recently held a three day Think-Tank in Tucson, AZ with the CDT to create a strategic plan for development, and implementation of the course.
