Taking this course has deepened my understanding of global health. I say that this course is for not beginners because it requires basic knowledge of the health profession as a whole. Some terms or concepts might be too technical for a lay person to appreciate. If you plan to take this course, make sure that you are very interested because some of the instructional materials might take too long to finish. The quizzes, too, requires you to think beyond of what was explicitly discussed. I appreciated Dr. Boyd's funny quips because it makes the materials easier to digest.
