You came to Tufts for your DVM– now look no further to update your skills in health communication to enhance your career!

We offer a variety of professional development courses throughout the year in different formats to meet different learners’ needs (online, one-week in person). Through these classes, you can enhance your skills in topics like health literacy and writing for digital audiences. We are always updating our courses to be current and relevant. For example, our one-week Digital Strategies for Health Communication in Boston includes a unique case study each year and this summer it is the American Medical Association (AMA). Did you know that Tufts has a European Campus in Talloires, France and we will offer Digital Strategies there as well with the case study WHO.

Tufts alumni can take any of our courses for credit at 75% off the for-credit tuition rate. If you don't need credits, you can also take it for professional development at 25% of the non-credit cost.
