Indigenous Public Health Training

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

The IPH team is excited to welcome students back to campus for the Indigenous Public Health Summer Institute 2022.  Although  public heath restrictions have eased, we will continue to monitor the situation and prepare a plan B should things change.  
The health and welfare of Indigenous communities during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic is of our utmost concern.  The IPH Summer Institute 2022 will offer two core courses from the Indigenous Public Health Graduate Certificate / Certificate (Non-Credit).
