Summary

Overview

These courses provide students with the knowledge and skills to contribute to the improved health of populations and particular groups within them through the promotion of health and prevention of diseases; the development and evaluation of care practices; and the investigation and control of environmental threats to health. Students are instructed in the development, use and critical evaluation of conceptual models, evidence, methods of analysis, and practical interventions.

These programmes provide students with the knowledge and skills to address diverse public health issues in low, middle and high income settings. The varied curriculum allows students to opt for a broad range of knowledge or to concentrate on specialised areas. The programme offers four alternative streams; the general Public Health stream and three specialist streams: Environment and Health; Health Promotion and Health Services Management.
