Objectives

The 4-day/3-night summer camp is a training programme that aims to prepare students to become future leaders in global health and development (GHD). Students will be exposed to contemporary GHD issues, with simulation workshops to hone skills in leadership, diplomacy, negotiation, advocacy, research, writing, critical thinking, and the application of these skills in a model United Nations General Assembly. There will be ample group-based activities, complemented by skill-based training workshops, experience sharing sessions and professional coaching by experienced practitioners in the GHD field.

Course Outline

During the course of the camp, students will participate in a series of skill-based training workshops, role-play simulation activities, experience-sharing and professional coaching sessions, and be equipped with the requisite skills to participate in a model United Nations General Assembly. The programme will conclude with a high table dinner on the final evening of the camp. Accommodation on campus is mandatory.

Students’ performance will be evaluated on their ability to demonstrate competencies in areas like negotiation, advocacy, communications, research, analysis, and teamwork as manifested in the combined effort of groups in the model United Nations General Assembly.

At the end of the camp, students are expected to have developed some basic understanding of contemporary issues in global health and development and be enlightened in their academic and career choices.
