  • Critically examine the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Trade Organization (WTO) and key international conventions and protocols
  • Hear from prominent key speakers from organisations including the WHO, WTO, and the medical profession
  • Benefit from strong links to the NHS, local authorities, policymakers and leading international figures in global health
  • Go on to work in health policy and other fields of public health and public policy with a global perspective

What you'll study

If you are involved in health policy and health systems as a medical practitioner, civil servant, lawyer, social or political scientist, or NGO worker, this may be the programme for you. It will interest policy makers who want to understand the bigger picture about global health.

Alongside a suite of modules offered in conjunction with the School's Global Health MScs, you will study compulsory modules in research design, qualitative and quantitative methods taken jointly with social science students from a range of disciplines across Queen Mary, King’s College London and Imperial College London as part of the training offered by the ESRC funded London Interdisciplinary Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership.

You will begin by developing knowledge of the key concepts and research methods and analysis. These will give you relevant methodological issues and challenges while providing interdisciplinary foundations. As the programme continues, you will gain a more detailed understanding of areas relevant to your interests through specialist and elective modules.

Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry is comprised of two renowned and prestigious teaching hospitals: St Bartholomew’s and The Royal London. Both continue to make an outstanding contribution to modern medicine and together have been consistently ranked among the top five institutions in the UK for medicine.
