Cultural Competency for Serving International Populations:

http://www.uniteforsight.org/global-health-university/cultural-competency-certificate

Cultural competence training and cultural awareness is of paramount importance for those working in any international or clinical setting.  Those participating abroad are immersed in a culture different from their own and will undoubtedly therefore experience culture shock and cultural adjustment.  Furthermore, those in any clinical setting must understand language barriers, how to work with translators, cultural differences and cultural understanding, and trust, among other cultural concerns.

This course is freely and publicly available. It is also part of the Certificate in Cultural Competency offered through Unite for Sight (http://www.uniteforsight.org/).
