Module Abstract

The role of Medical Expert in global and refugee health–caring for vulnerable populations in unfamiliar resource-limited settings–encompasses a wide range of skills, knowledge and attitudes.

The expert brings it all together using the skills of communicator, collaborator and advocate, and drawing on their knowledge to assess and manage various cases.

This module focuses on the refugee health expert’s role in prevention. We invite you to explore the cases and videos.
