Georgia Tech offers certificate in Health & Humanitarian Supply Chain Management

Georgia Tech will offer a professional certificate program in Health & Humanitarian Supply Chain Management on May 14-19 at the Georgia Tech Global Learning Center in Atlanta. The three-course, six-day certificate program is designed for practitioners in private industry, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), government, military and others who are active participants or interested in health and humanitarian systems. The goal of the program is to enhance the knowledge and experience of participants on a broad range of topics including adverse events preparedness and response (e.g., disasters or health emergencies), as well as healthcare delivery and health systems strengthening. Click here for a summary of the May 2017 certificate program with reviews from past participants.

Courses include many interactive components, such as case studies, simulations and games, which help professionals to link the challenges and decision-making tradeoffs they face in everyday practice with the systematic approaches, tools and techniques presented in the course. Upon completion of the requirements for the three courses, participants will receive a certificate from Georgia Tech in Health & Humanitarian Supply Chain Management.

The program will offer a limited number of scholarships in 2018 (primarily for applicants from NGOs), which were made possible through the generosity of the UPS Foundation. Please apply here for a scholarship.

Register here for the program and contact j.cooper@isye.gatech.edu or hhs@isye.gatech.edu with any questions. To sign up for all three courses and receive the discounted rate for the full certificate program, use the code SCL-HHS at check-out.
