2019 Pittsburgh INMED Professional Certificate Course Grads


One element which sets INMED Professional Certificate Courses apart from other global health learning experiences is the qualifications of our faculty. Case in point: the 2019 Pittsburgh PA INMED Professional Certificate Courses in International Medicine, Nursing and Public Health. For the sixth year running, these Pittsburgh courses are being taught by Paul Larson. A faculty position at the University of Pittsburgh medical Center, Dr. Larson also earned a London School Professional Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, and served for two years at Kapsowar Hospital in rural Kenya.

In matters of personal life, a superior supervisor is also one who has learned the special skills of balancing family and profession, teaching and serving, while also communicating with the larger world division for serving those on the margins of societies. Among these 2019 Pittsburgh learners in the back row, far right, is their exemplary role model: Paul Larson.
