Course Overview

Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Vanderbilt Institute for Global Health, and Assist International are committed to supporting healthcare providers in low- and middle-income countries during the global COVID-19 pandemic.

While the COVID-19 situation is still evolving, we are doing everything we can to help healthcare providers in LMICs be prepared to provide life-saving care to patients in need. With this in mind, we have developed a comprehensive tele-education series to provide remote trainings and a platform for discussion and the sharing of best practices in caring for COVID-19 patients in low-resource settings.
