Introduction to Immigrant and Refugee Health Course

Date of Review: June, 2020

This is a well-designed, 7-hour, lecture-based introductory course in immigrant and refugee health, available online with free registration. The lectures are practical and clinically oriented, covering effective communication in the setting of language and cultural differences; myths about immigrants; best practices in immigrant and refugee health; screening guidelines; immunizations; mental health; and the special needs of torture survivors. Though aimed at practitioners, students and trainees could likely appreciate this content as well. Multiple-choice pre and post tests, including some vignette questions, are included –Amy Brown, MD, NCEAS
