Course summary

This 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. 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. The Health Services and Systems stream focuses on the theory and practice of health promotion and health service management. The key themes that define this stream are: quality improvement in health care, health intelligence, and population health improvement. The Global Health stream is orientated towards training students for a Global Health career. The stream seeks to expand your understanding of the manifestations of health challenges within the context of low-and middle-income country settings, as well as the supranational governance structures and processes involved in tackling these challenges. The stream also discusses global health innovations aimed at enhancing health outcomes. 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.
