    Global Health (GH) has always attracted the attention of many students in medicine, nursing, related medical services, and even in international studies, policy, and diplomatic studies and economic studies and so on. In this article, the author tries to extract the essential factors of GH education for better understanding and improvement of the contents of the GH education. Throughout the author’s experiences in GH training, including a training program for primary health care at Mahidol University, Thailand, workshopstyle training, classroom lectures, training thorough filed surveys, the author concludes that we should consider the educatee’s experiences in GH activities. For those who have scarce experiences, three common misunderstandings should be corrected, including 1) GH is not a medical doctor’s independent business, 2) Emergency aid is not equal to GH, and 3) Medical treatment practice is not essential in on-site GH service. For those who have some experiences and wish to be a professional GH player, we should teach four principal values for GH including 1) Give an excellent advice to community people, but do not practice treatment by oneself, 2) DO NO HARM to community people, 3) Acquire health and medical skills that can work even in their own countries and 4) Always consider action and education with global standards of GH.
