Health courses in a refugee context: The University of Geneva’s Faculty of Medicine contributes to InZone’s academic offer with three courses: two Moodle-based courses in basic medical education and community health care and one blended learning course in public health (One-Health).
The Faculty of Medicine is currently reassessing its contribution to InZone and aims to develop a new blended learning Certificate of Open Studies in Community Health specifically designed to address refugees’ needs. The future certificate will address both local healthcare needs and the wider existing needs of origin and resettlement countries. Concise and practice-oriented, the certificate course, which is to include 10 modules, should be stackable and facilitate access to ancillary professions/functions in high demand by healthcare service providers.
