Great Starting Point for Thai Medical English Students - Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health's OPENCOURSEWARE (OCW)

The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health's OPENCOURSEWARE (OCW) project provides access to the content of the School's most popular courses. As challenges to the world's health escalate daily, the School feels a moral imperative to provide equal and open access to information and knowledge about the obstacles to the public's health and their potential solutions.

"I’m writing on behalf of OOPS (Opensource OpenCourseWare Prototype System), a group of over 1,600 volunteers working to translate every OCW site into Chinese. I want to say that OCW goes way beyond any definition of OpenCourseWare: It’s a spirit of "with greater power comes greater responsibility." Thank you, JHSPH, for sharing your precious knowledge with the world and giving us the chance to pass it on!" - Lucifer Chu

"Only a small portion of all the professionals and others around the world who could benefit from attending this School could ever actually hope to come here. OCW provides an opportunity for those who are motivated and interested to gain unique insights into public health as a profession and as a career at no cost to them." —Michael J. Klag, MD, MPH '87

Educational Perspective:

Please take the time to review these Free and open courses that are provided by JHBSPH. I encourage any of my undergraduate and graduate Thai medical students to take any course of interest. You will improve your overall English language abilities and foundational medical educational knowledge. I fully support the Open Course Ware Inititives especially in developing countries like Thailand. 

I am very proud that one of my students received the one year medical  research fellowship at JHBSPH. This proves to all Thai medical students that hard work and excellent English skills will open all barriers to for 21st  Century ASEAN Medical Professionals. I will continue to assist all Thailand educational stakeholders to increase Thailands standing in the ASEAN community.
