Overview

I-TECH and the University of Washington are committed to training clinical and public health laboratory managers and directors to take on important roles such as advocacy, policy development, and inter-agency coordination, to be more effective leaders in public health. This nine-month professional certificate program is designed to be delivered through a series of distance-learning courses to accommodate course participants who are midcareer working professionals. Participants have an opportunity to meet one another and the course trainers during two pivotal face-to-face meetings at the beginning and the end of the course.

This multi-course certificate was initially piloted in 2014 in the Middle East-North Africa region and was open to senior laboratory leaders by invitation from Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Yemen, Lebanon, Pakistan, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Morocco.
