Globalisation, Refugees and Health

September 13-19, 2015

The Institute for Social medicine, Epidemiology and Health Economics (Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin) and IPPNW Germany offer a one-week full-time course in Global Health Challenges in general and the situation of refugees from a Global Health perspective in particular.


Theoretical analysis and practical relevance determine the course of our collaborative summer school. It allows joint analysis of complex interactions between globalisation and health. The focus will be on problem-based and participatory learning. Input from experts, internet based research, manuscript analysis, group work, case-studies, presentations and excursions to projects are part of the overall programme. The course is relevant not only to medical students and public health science students but also to others working within health and health systems.

The objective of the Summer School is to introduce the students to complex interactions between globalisation and health in general. Furthermore the topic of this year’s events "Globalisation, Refugees and Health" will provide the basis for work during the Summer School and Conference.

Speakers come from national and international institutions of higher education. Persons with specific global health competence and experience are also part of the faculty.

Course certificate
A course certificate will be issued upon completion of the course.

Course structure
The course is taught in English. Lectures are held between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Workshops on our case study will be held after the lectures at three days. There will be one or more social arrangements in the evening depending on the course participants’ interests and own requests.

A one-day Conference on Saturday 12th September will go ahead of the Summer School.
