The online ISGlobal Summer School proposes a unique interdisciplinary teaching program, organized in six different modules among which participants can choose.

The objective is to give an in-depth overview of cross-cutting methods for global health, including quantitative health impact assessment methods, data science algorithms applied to health and biology, eHealth tools, and innovative methods for predicting health and diseases in exposome studies. 

Specific modules are also dedicated to tackle global health challenges, such as climate change and other challenges of the Anthropocene (through a Planetary Health approach), and the disruptive impact in society of infectious diseases. 

Theoretical and practical sessions determine the content of our interdisciplinary summer school course.
