MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Essential Clinical Global Health is a brand–new, pioneering, and evidence–based textbook that provides a clinical overview of the increasingly prominent specialty of global health. Originally developed from a course at Harvard Medical School, and now with contributions from nearly 100 world–renowned global health experts from across the globe, this textbook presents vital information required of students, trainees, and clinicians during their international experiences and training.


Essential Clinical Global Health introduces readers to the up–to–date knowledge, skills, and approaches needed for productive and rewarding global health experiences. It provides essential clinical information on the diagnosis, management, and prevention of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in low– and middle–income countries. The textbook also includes practical guidance on topics such as health systems, population–based approaches, cultural awareness and sensitivity, travel preparedness and safety, and career development in global health.


With key learning objectives in each chapter, practical clinical advice, setting–appropriate guidelines, personal field experiences from student and clinician contributors, Essential Clinical Global Health is the first global health textbook with a clinical focus for healthcare students, trainees, and providers.

A companion website at www.wileyessential.com/globalhealth features self–assessment questions and videos.
