Participants indicated that global health competence is essential for postgraduate health professionals. Concerns were expressed about overburdening curricula and identifying what is ‘essential’ for whom. Conflicting perspectives emerged about the importance and relevance of different global health topics.Five core competencies were developed: 1.Diversity, human rights and ethics; 2.Environmental, social and economic determinants of health; 3.Global epidemiology; 4.Global health governance; and 5.Health systems and health professionals.
