Welcome to Supercourse

Supercourse is a repository of lectures on global health and prevention designed to improve the teaching of prevention. Supercourse has a network of over 56000 scientists in 174 countries who are sharing for free a library of 5600 lectures in 31 languages. The Supercourse has been produced at the WHO Collaborating Center University of Pittsburgh, with core developers Ronald LaPorte, Ph.D., Faina Linkov, Ph.D. and Eugene Shubnikov M.D. Please contact us at super1@pitt.edu.

Supercourse does not grant degrees or certificates, but is designed to be a resource for teachers, professors, and other educators. Supercourse does not provide access to faculty members developing the modules.

We were originally funded three times by NASA, and by the National Library of Medicine. We have built a “Library of Lectures” with passionate scientific lectures from across the world. We have developed a technology for inexpensive, sustainable global training. More information on our program.

We have published over 157 papers in leading medical journals including Nature, Lancet, British Medical Journal, Military Medicine, Nature Medicine, and PNAS among others. Our web pages have been identified as in the top 100 by PC Magazine, and one of the top 11 content pages by the Lancet. We receive 75 million hits a year.

Please visit the new Supercourse journal, Central Asian Journal of Global Health (CAJGH) , and submit your papers. More information about CAJGH at Pittsburgh University TIMES - http://www.utimes.pitt.edu/?p=26794
