Event Information

Opportunity to hear from Dr Derek Ward and ask any questions you have about studying Public Health.

This modular, multidisciplinary programme in public health is designed to provide academic training to professionals currently working in, or who wish to work in, the public health field.

The programme covers most aspects of population health and the disciplines underlying the practice of public health: epidemiology, applied health research methods and statistics; health economics; health information and informatics; healthcare public health and health service management; health improvement and health protection; and global health. As well as practising clinicians and those working in public health roles, the course may be of considerable value for those involved (or thinking about becoming involved) in planning and commissioning roles in health services, and life sciences industries, where a knowledge of population health and research methods is highly valued. Its modular nature allows you the flexibility to shape the programme to fit your needs. The programme also covers many of the areas necessary for sitting the Part A examination of the Faculty of Public Health.

You will study compulsory modules, then choose from a wide range of optional modules. You will also attend a non-assessed introductory week at the beginning of the course which provides an introduction to key concepts in public health.
