McGill University and McGill University Health Centre have exceptionally strong research groups and centers working on TB, HIV, and neglected tropical diseases. These Centers have a track record of advanced courses and workshops that are offered every year, in topics such as tuberculosis research methods, TB diagnostics, and tropical and parasitic diseases. Since July 2015, under the aegis of the McGill Global Health Programs, several short courses on infectious diseases were combined into a coherent, integrated “McGill Summer Institute in Infectious Diseases and Global Health.” Courses in the Summer Institute will feature internationally known faculty, and bring together a diverse group of participants.


2021 will be the McGill Summer Institute in Infectious Diseases and Global Health’s sixth year. To date we have held 30 courses and hosted 2,278 participants!


All 2021 courses will be held online. More information about the platform and online learning environment will be shared soon.


McGill University is located on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. McGill honours, recognizes and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which peoples of the world now gather. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
