Dr. Frank provided an overview of NextGenU.org’s innovative, unique approach to education. While our organization shares characteristics with traditional universities and massive open online courses, we have others that are completely unique to us (for credit for free, financial and time efficiency, competency-based learning, widely varied resources, advertisement-free, etc.)
In addition to courses, we offer several programs and trainings, including a Masters’ Degree in Public Health (MPH), Pre-health sciences training, MedSchoolInABox, Preventive Medicine Residency, and materials for a Bachelor of Science in Nursing through our partner organization, Nurses International. Our MPH curriculum consists of core courses that provide the necessary components of the degree, and sample electives with a variety of public health and clinical applications that can be used by institutions to offer a full MPH program, integrated into other degree programs, or used as continuing education training. The MPH program has been highly successful, with 150 students currently enrolled from over 40 countries, and more than 100 graduates.
