The Aga Khan Development Network eHealth Resource Centre (AKDN eHRC) was established in 2011 to provide strategic eHealth support to the Aga Khan Development Network health agencies and their partner health institutions with managing their eHealth operations.
The AKDN eHRC has developed and is now offering a year-long online certificate course in eHealth, to begin in April 2016. The course aims to increase awareness about eHealth and help build capacities of professionals in health care remotely. It focuses on helping the audience understand the concepts of eHealth, implement eHealth solutions and address the challenges around eHealth service delivery, primarily in low- and-middle income countries.
The course consists of 11 modules. Each module is delivered asynchronously over a period of three weeks. For more information, visit the link for 'Course Structure.' Each module also includes a video that explains the module, walks you through the weekly activities that you will perform and outlines what is expected of you from this module.
The course is completely online and is self-paced and aimed at all professionals in the health care field, whether IT, operations or service delivery. Interested candidates may apply for specific module(s) or the entire course by submitting the online application form and a personal statement. The deadline to apply for the course is Tuesday, March 15, 2016; 12:00 A.M. EST.
The fee for the entire course (10 modules + 1 Capstone module) is USD 599.00. The fee for each module is USD 49.00. The fee for the Capstone module is USD 109.00.
