Climate Change and Health Boot Camp

The Climate Change and Health Boot Camp is a three-day intensive course that will prepare clinicians, scientists, and other members of the research, health, and public health communities for informed, effective engagement with climate change issues in their professional lives.

This three-day intensive boot camp combines content on the mechanisms and health impacts of climate change with practical approaches to mitigation and adaptation that participants can apply to their professional work. Led by physicians and public health experts with specialized training in Climate Change and Health, this workshop will integrate content-oriented lectures, skills-oriented class exercises, and group discussion of broader themes, challenges, and opportunities. Upon completion of the course, participants are expected to have an understanding of key topics in climate change and health and a personal action plan for engagement with these issues in their professional work.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be familiar with the following topics:

  • Causes of climate change and the contribution of the health system to climate change
  • Current, evidence-based mechanisms connecting climate change to health impacts
  • Implications of climate change for health equity
  • How to access climate projections, information on projected health impacts, and information to support long-term planning and research
  • Clinical actions to consider in climate-affected patients
  • Principals of healthcare system and public health resilience planning in the context of climate change
  • Principals of climate and health communication with a variety of stakeholders
  • Case studies on successful engagement with climate and health issues by individuals, institutions, and communities


Professionals from any institution and from all career stages are welcome to attend, and we particularly encourage trainees and early-stage investigators to participate. There are two requirements to attend this training:

  1. Participants are expected to attend all sessions and come prepared to participate in group discussions, undertake brief in-class exercises, and share their experience/expertise with other learners.
  2. Participants will be expected to have a working laptop or tablet with video and audio capabilities.
