The University of Manchester
Distance / Online
Our distance learning Master of Public Health (Implementation Sciences) course meets the training needs of health professionals around the world who are interested in a career in public health and or those seeking new skills in this area.
It will enable you to interpret and communicate research evidence as applied to a variety of settings.
Contemporary public health practice requires practitioners to be adaptable and flexible, with a broad experience of a range of subject areas.
This course will equip you with:
- the skills and knowledge to apply to public health concerns at local, national and international level;
- the ability to apply relevant theory and scientific principles to practical situations;
- the capability of meeting core-competencies in public health.
In addition to this, we will focus on application of evidence-base into practice. This course will help clinicians to provide optimal patient care and provides a sound basis for health science researchers to progress to doctoral study. The content has been designed by international leaders in the field of implementation science.
PGCert, PGDip and MPH awards are available.

A career in public health offers a diverse range of opportunities in a variety of settings. The focus on implementation sciences into health care will equip healthcare professionals with the knowledge and skills to bridge those gaps and bring about health improvement. It will also provide a sound basis for health science researchers to progress to doctoral study.
Most of our students complete the course part-time while working in a wide variety of jobs and sectors, and many (eg GPs, hospital doctors, health promotion staff, managers and researchers) take the course to give them public health skills and expertise to apply within their own profession and/or setting.
