Course summary

The essence of public health is to prevent disease, promote health and prolong life.

This course will prepare you to become a public health professional ready to address local and global health problems. You’ll learn about multidisciplinary, evidence-based approaches and be taught by researchers who are experts in epidemiology, evidence synthesis, randomised controlled trials and social medicine.

We offer you a range of options so that you can develop the core disciplines you need for public health practice and study a number of specialised aspects of public health including health policy, public health research or global and humanitarian work.

The MPH is run in collaboration with the Hull York Medical School (HYMS).
