University of Nottingham School of Medicine

With 25 years’ experience of public health education we understand how to deliver the important balance between academic excellence and the real-world practical application of public health skills.

You will be part of a student-centred course which is taught by multi-disciplinary expert epidemiologists, methodologists and public health practitioners.

You will engage with staff who are committed to high-quality research and training in investigating the occurrence, causes and prevention of disease in populations.

Through our comprehensive set of core modules you will gain skills that are transferable to public health practice in all contexts. This includes skills in epidemiology, statistics, research methods, critical appraisal and applied public health techniques such as health needs assessment.

Optional modules will offer the opportunity to gain more in-depth skills in subjects of particular interest to you, including qualitative research methods and health data management, health economics, health promotion, sociology and health protection.

The final dissertation will provide the opportunity to carry out an extended piece of research to address a real public health problem, integrating the skills gained throughout the course and well-supported by experienced researchers. You will gain skills that are highly valued by a range of national and global employers, including national health services, governmental and non-governmental organisations, academic institutions and industry.
