We are encountering new challenges in public health - for example, the obesity crisis - that means the focus of public health bodies is shifting away from traditional communicable diseases. With new challenges come more opportunities to improve population-level health.
This course covers the broad range of knowledge and skills required for public health practice around the world. You'll explore how public health principles apply to professional practice and how research processes apply to public health. Your understanding of public health approaches will be increased, as will your knowledge of health service organisations, management and economics.
The course welcomes students from a wide range of educational backgrounds.
We accept medical students who wish to intercalate their studies. Find out more on the Medical School's website.
All modules on this course can be studied as standalone CPD modules. It is possible to complete standalone modules and then apply to transfer to an MSc/PGDip/PGCert qualification. Any time spent on the CPD route counts toward the time-limit a student has to complete their chosen qualification.
