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 very strong 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.
