University of Minnesota Global Health Pathways Program
Today, only 18 medical schools in the entire world teach Global Medicine. The University of Minnesota’s Global Health Pathways Program is one of them. As one of the leading programs in the U.S, the U of M’s program provides educational opportunities for healthcare trainees and practicing providers — all with the goal of improving the care of patients in or from low- and middle-income nations.
Critical Measures maintains a strategic partnership with the University of Minnesota. We collaborated with Dr. Patricia Walker and Dr. William Stauffer, the two co-directors of the U of M’s Global Health Pathways Program to create our new Viewpoints program – the first CME accredited e-learning program in the U.S. to offer instruction on global medicine. The University of Minnesota Continuing Medical Education Program accredits all of our e-learning course offerings.
Comprised of more than 20 faculty who have dedicated their lives to global health, the Medicine Global Health program has grown exponentially since its inception in 1981. Today, it offers:
- Partner sites and other educational programming on 4 continents
- Training to 10 new residents every academic year
- Online education programs with over 300+ hours of provider content
- An in-person course that has trained more than 200 community healthcare providers

GuideVue Inc. is a Houston-based corporation that creates cutting-edge applications (apps) for mobile phones and tablets. The GuideVue technology, which was originally created at NASA, can be used to create mobile training courses or mobile health applications. Learn More.
- Mobile Training Courses: GuideVue technology supports self-paced or off-site training from virtually any location; Internet connectivity is not required. Training materials can be quickly created and updated by subject matter experts because the GuideVue format does not require computer programmers. Users will solve patient cases or workplace diversity issues by listening to audio, viewing embedded videos or photographs and reading textual descriptions of real-world problems. Users’ answers to quiz questions and overall progress can be tracked and monitored by GuideVue’s built-in user tracking capabilities. Government regulations or organizational policies, rules and procedures can be built into the instructional flow to prompt and test for adherence and/or compliance in any situation or location. Instructors can provide instantaneous or just-in-time feedback to build or enhance practical job-related skills or clinical behavior.
- Mobile Health Applications: GuideVue technology can also be used to document the care provided to patients, obtain and record clinical patient data via interviews, videos and images and provide health workers with validated, evidence-based, clinical practice guidelines or decision support instructions. Further, GuideVue allows users to automatically connect with remote physicians, medical experts or specialists without connectivity on Android or iOS devices. As a result, GuideVue apps can be used to provide point of care decisions or treatment or just-in-time patient education or to support the thoroughness of informed consent procedures.
