Course summary

About This Course

This Doctorate provides students with a rigorous framework for the development and synthesis of empirical, professional and organisational knowledge in the area of public health, including the development of knowledge and skills in public health and health promotion theory, research and practice, focusing on current priorities and challenges that involve ethical, economic, political, societal and cultural factors.

Reflecting the diverse nature of public health, the Doctorate in Public Health enables applied practitioners to adopt leadership roles and advance their career. It does this by providing students with a structured programme to advance scholarship within their professional practice in public health. A taught programme will allow students to develop a more in-depth knowledge of subject areas such as utilizing clinical trials and greater knowledge of discrete public health areas such as co-producing health or nutrition or skills in evidence-synthesis. It will also provide a core set of skills required to manage change, lead public health programmes, and to work with individuals, groups and communities. This is augmented by optional modules that broaden the students’ experience. Furthermore, candidates will complete a substantive piece of research focused on examining key areas of public health, health promotion and research.

Research Opportunities

The academics involved with this programme have extensive links with external bodies, companies and the Third Sector which are fully utilised in ensuring that the modules are relevant to the modern work and research environment graduates will enter. This course utilises the health services research expertise embedded in the Bangor Institute of Health and Medical Research as well as the practical knowledge of experienced nurses and who still have active links to the local Health Board ensuring that modern clinical practice is embedded within the programme.
