A new orientation in the MPH programme allowing flexible, tailor-made and part-time study in international health

Introduction

The field of international health is getting ever more complex with expanding global threats posed by infectious and non-communicable diseases, persisting large inequalities in health and quality of health care, increasing numbers of (international) actors and global health initiatives, struggling public health care systems, epidemiological and nutritional transitions, neglected health problems and important translation gaps from evidence to policy and practice.

To deal with this increasingly challenging context, well trained professionals and researchers are needed with a strong public health vision to improve the quality and effectiveness of clinical care, manage health programmes and systems and to develop context specific policies and strategies.

The MPH-IH intends to be an answer to these challenges as it allows a broad and diverse outflow profile. It is an international, modular and flexible master after master programme of 60 ECTS credits, to be completed within 5 years (2,5 years for scholarship students).

The flexibility of this programme has 3 dimensions: it refers to content, time and place. It is the students’ responsibility to plan, obtain approval at different stages and manage his/her individual study-plan.

Objectives and occupational profile

At the end of the programme participants should be able to:

  • Review, interpret and evaluate evidence.
  • Generate evidence on international health issues through own research, using primary or secondary data.
  • Formulate evidence-based strategies and policies to strengthen clinical care,  disease prevention and control and/or health systems.
  • Relate strategies and policies to the broader national, international and global health systems environments.
  • Integrate a value-based approach.
  • Communicate and negotiate with diverse stakeholders.

The master (MPH) in international health will be able to work:

  • As manager at different levels of a health care system.

Global Health

If you feel challenged by the global impact of health-affecting events like epidemics, natural disasters and inequities in access to health services, you are obviously interested in global health.
If, in addition, you enjoy learning and working in small groups composed of fellow students from different countries and with various educational backgrounds, joining the Master of Science in Global Health is a great opportunity for you.
The master’s programme in Global Health is a one-year programme in English which addresses at global scale the complex relationships among health, healthcare, technology, international business, economic development, politics, socio-cultural environment, and management. The programme encompasses a core and electives.

Electives are offered by:

The programme offers both actual and virtual student and faculty exchanges between the participating universities, including residencies for electives at a partner university, online sharing of courses and seminars, with intercontinental teams working on shared assignments, and a two-week Learning Symposium in which all students in the programme gather – possibly in a developing country – to exchange ideas and experiences, and to lay a basis for future collaboration.

In addition to the regular one year programme, Global Health is also offered as a specialization within the Faculty’s two year Master in Health Sciences Research programme. Students with a particular interest in research in the global health field are invited to check the Health Sciences Research Master here.
