The 2017 edition of the McGill Summer Institute in Infectious Diseases and Global Health will be held June 12-23rd 2017 at the Centre Mont-Royal. The Summer Institute short courses feature internationally known faculty, a focus on highly applicable new knowledge, and an opportunity to network with fellow global health professionals from around the world. Hosted by McGill Global Health Programs, the McGill International TB Centre, the McGill Institute of Parasitology and the MUHC-RI (Infectious Diseases and Immunity in Global Health), the Summer Institute will deliver six courses covering many different areas of global health research.
