Global Advisory Board

Global Advisory Board

As part of CapacityPlus’s innovative workforce development strategy, the project has created a Global Advisory Board on Strengthening Medical, Nursing, and Public Health Schools in Developing Countries. The board will help address management issues in health professional schools.

The board will assist CapacityPlus in the development of an analytical framework to assess major managerial challenges in health professional schools in developing countries. This framework will consider essential school management functions including admissions, student affairs, human resources, faculty development, course scheduling, curriculum tracking, accreditation, strategic planning, financing and budgeting, fundraising, clinical access, facility and space management, and alumni relations.
