Training approaches and learning contexts
Field-based practical experiences
IGPH’s longstanding and emerging intervention research programs in priority countries provide a wealth of opportunities for students to learn within the context of "living" programs as they unfold.
Within a program science framework, students are able to view the dynamic co-workings of research studies, health programs, community advocacy and empowerment against the exciting backdrop of local and global policy making.
The dynamic learning opportunities within the context of IGPH programs brings students into direct interaction with a diverse range of global health actors, including:
- country health officials
- local community health workers
- social workers
- socio-cultural anthropologists
- qualitative researchers
These multidisciplinary and multi-sectoral engagements provide students with an opportunity to directly participate in teams that respond to health problems facing the world today.
Decolonizing knowledge production processes
IGPH projects are based on long-term collaborations, extensive rapport building and mutual trust, and driven by the needs and priorities of our country partners.
Expertise located in community, nongovernmental and governmental agencies are placed at the centre of all research intervention programs.
Knowledge is always swiftly shared between IGPH and country partners and translated into objectives that address the expressed needs of partners.
Opportunities for academic modes of data sharing via publications and conferences are shared between UM trainees and trainees based in learning institution outside Canada.
Our global team of experts also furnish opportunities for trainees to learn from innovative South-to-South knowledge exchange processes.
