UBC launches Canada’s first Indigenous-focused graduate certificate in public health

UBC’s Centre for Excellence in Indigenous Health (CEIH) has launched a 12-credit Graduate Certificate in Indigenous Public Health (GCIPH) as well as a non-credit certificate to improve Indigenous representation in public health. This initiative marks Canada’s first public health professional development program that has an Indigenous focus.

Aiming to be accessible to professionals who work full time or those who live in remote communities, GCIPH offers four one-week intensive “institutes,” covering two courses per week. Since the institutes only happen twice a year — in February and August — participants are expected to take at least two years to finish the program.

Explore Canada’s only Indigenous Public Health professional development opportunity at UBC’s Faculty of Medicine.

The Indigenous Public Health Training Institutes equip Indigenous community members and scholars with the necessary skills to address public health issues in Indigenous communities. One-week intensive courses are offered toward the completion of the Graduate Certificate or Certificate (non-credit) in Indigenous Public Health, or courses can be taken individually.
