CGHE Training and Education

Through several courses and programs, CGHE provides  training for personnel within the Department of Defense (DoD) Global Health Engagement (GHE) enterprise as  well as interagency and international partners to promote greater understanding of DoD GHE.

The Fundamentals of Global Health Engagement I (FOGHE I) course is a 3-day awareness-level course designed to prepare Military Health System professionals to better conduct GHE activities. 

The Fundamentals of Global Health Engagement II (FOGHE II) course is a new 2-day global health engagement training course being developed and is meant to be delivered in conjunction with the FOGHE I. This course is targeted for Senior GHE leaders or Planners at the Combatant Command level or Service Component level to provide a fundamental understanding of how to employ DoD GHE as a security cooperation tool. 

The Global Health Strategies for Security Course (GHSS), held annually each spring in the Washington, DC metro area, is a one-week course designed to develop an in-depth understanding of DoD GHE, outline civil and military considerations at the nexus of global health and security, and foster a whole-of-government approach to strengthening USG global health activities. Attendees include representatives from Combatant Commands, Services, USG interagency, and partner nations.

Recognizing the dynamic nature of the DoD GHE field, CGHE engages in continuous improvement of its courses in order to stay up to date and ensure the courses meet the needs of the Joint Force.
