Starting with a focus in the health sciences, NextGenU.org now has registrants in 193 (of 195) UN countries, a $16 million endowment, 7 years of uniquely offering courses for credit for free, and funders and partners including CDC, Harvard, NATO, Stanford, and WHO. This free model has been successfully tested in North American medical and public health students, and in community health workers and primary care physicians in Kenya and in India -- showing identical knowledge gain and greater student satisfaction compared with traditional courses, positive effects on complex health worker behaviors (like counselling) and attitudes (like stigma), and the creation of a global community of learning and practice. NextGenU.org now offers our ultimate goal, the world's first free degrees: a full Masters' degree program in Public Health, the complete reading materials for a 4-year MedSchoolInABox, and Graduate Medical Education (in Preventive Medicine). Courses are competency-based, ranging from undergraduate and community health worker training, through Continuing Medical Education, and include a local or global peer community, and skills-oriented mentorships. Please come learn more about us or have a look at our available courses.
