This full-time course merges the study of epidemiology, biostatistics and health research methods with public health skills.
It will suit those with both medical and non-medical backgrounds who are interested in developing their research skills and public health career.
Course lecturers are leaders in academic fields of statistics, epidemiology (chronic diseases and infectious diseases) and health services research. Guest speakers include public health professionals with experience in developing, managing and implementing interventions in public health.
You will have a unique opportunity to study three modules from the MSc in International Health Management at Imperial College Business School: Health Economics; Health Policy, Systems and Financing; and Contemporary Topics in Health Policy.
The WHO Collaborating Centre for Public Health Education and Training offers some opportunities to students on the MPH Course to visit different multilateral agencies and international organisations in Geneva, Switzerland.
Further onsite work visits are organised to support quality improvement initiatives in the local NHS Trusts, through the Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) Northwest London.
You have opportunities to undertake a summer research project with a wide range of NHS and public health organisations, global health institutions, and think-tank groups.
In public health, the focus is on populations and communities rather than individual patients. There are a number of career options in research, public or government services or voluntary organisations and non-governmental organisations.
Starting from a common core, students may develop into roles ranging from public health analysts, health services researchers, communicable disease control consultants, environmental epidemiologists, health policy advisors or directors of public health.
