Public Health (Statement of Extra Accredited Learning)
The aim of this course is to provide students with an enhanced preparation for continuing academic study or Part A of the Membership of the Faculty of Public Health (UK) examination; the course provides a broader version of the current MPH programme (230 instead of 180 credits); by being formally assessed and accredited in more modules, the MPH (SEAL) allows students to demonstrate their wider competency range.
This programme is open to those with a good 1st degree in any subject of relevance to public health; this includes most biological sciences. Applications are also welcome from UK medical students who wish to intercalate. For the diploma, applications are also accepted from those with a relevant professional qualification or sufficient public health experience at the appropriate level without a primary degree, e.g. registered nurses.
Modules include: Introduction to public health (not assessed); epidemiology statistics and research methods; practical epidemiology and statistics; health information and health informatics. 4 Optional modules from: health technology assessment - principles and practices; health economics; public health management 1; health care evaluation and commissioning; health protection 1; sociology and social policy 1; health promotion; plus many more.
Assessment is via a mixture of examination and assignments, and a 10000-word dissertation.
