2016 Course

The 2016 edition of the McGill Summer Institute in Infectious Diseases and Global Health was recently held June 13-24th on the McGill campus. 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 JD MacLean Centre for Tropical Diseases and the MUHC-RI (Infectious Diseases and Immunity in Global Health)  the Summer Institute  offered five courses:

  •  TB Research Methods
  • Global Health Diagnostics
  • Advanced TB Diagnostic Research
  • Molecular and Genetic Epidemiology
  • Tropical and Parasitic Diseases


About 400 participants from 46 countries attended. The Summer Institute’s unique format attracts a diverse group of participants from industry leaders to NGO’s, academics and researchers, and advocacy group members. The 2017 Summer Institute will offer an even bigger selection of courses. We hope you will join us next year!
