The Faculty of Public Health and Policy is concerned with applying health, social and management sciences to major issues in public health and health services. Research focuses on policy in relation to social and environmental factors in health, and health impact assessment and analysis; the evaluation of activities aimed at health promotion and the prevention of disease; the organisation and financing of health care, the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of health care, and quality improvement in health care; and the study of health policy processes.
The Faculty promotes multidisciplinary collaboration, and staff include doctors, nurses, pharmacists, epidemiologists, statisticians, geographers, sociologists, political scientists, historians, economists, psychologists and anthropologists. Our research involves studies in Europe and North America, as well as middle- and lower-income countries all over the world. Our students are correspondingly international.
We welcome applications from students wishing to study for an MSc, a PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) or a DrPH (Doctor of Public Health). Research students become members of one of the Research Departments in the Faculty, participating in the full range of the Department's academic and social activities. Students are allocated a Supervisor, and hence a Research Department, based on their research interests and disciplinary area. A comprehensive research skills training programme is provided for research degrees students. Students in the department hold meetings, and social events are organised at intervals throughout the year to encourage students to get to know each other and develop a supportive environment.
