Course content

In today’s globalised world, and amongst the medical and public health fraternity, there is an urgent need to prioritise global disease management, particularly taking into account the varying diseases that affect both high and low income countries. This specialist pathway will enable you to understand key diseases that contribute significantly to overall mortality and morbidity across the globe.


- Excellent Image Resource and Biomedical Research facilities to gain strong research knowledge and skills
- Shared campus with one of the largest teaching hospitals in the UK
- Expertise in clinical, epidemiological and laboratory research within the University and St George’s Hospital

Global Health Diseases Module

The Global Health Diseases 30 credit module deals with aetiology, pathology, clinical manifestations, prevention and treatment. Each disease is dealt with from a global perspective and forms the basis of how the disease is dealt with in different geographical contexts such as in rich and poorer nations. Other important aspects such as overviews of epidemiology, surveillance, data gathering and organisation, global and national public health initiatives and the major organisations involved in disease control will also be presented. This module will take advantage of active research into global disease at St George’s to enable you to work on specific topics in this area.


The course is highly effective for accelerating your development within your general healthcare career. As a direct result of the depth and quality of the academic research that you’ll undertake on your nin8e month project, you will also be in primary position when it comes to successfully applying for PhDs.
