Our Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) course takes an innovative multidisciplinary approach, drawing upon international experts in health economics, health protection, communicable disease, epidemiology, social justice, health promotion, biostatistics, and health and social policy.

The course was developed to provide you with the cutting-edge research experience, knowledge and skills to enable you to undertake strategic leadership in public health.

The main product of the module will be a written proposal for the thesis including a brief review of the literature, study design, and a methodology and methods section.
