School of Public Health
The Yorkshire & the Humber Deanery’s School of Public Health provides high quality training for people wishing to become Consultants in Public Health. The Programme provides a wide range of opportunities and experiences in the NHS and with partners from other sectors and specialities. The Training Programme is open to both qualified medical doctors and those from backgrounds other than medicine.
The Programme is led by a Head of School and a Training Programme Director, supported by Educational Supervisors and Project Supervisors across the Yorkshire and Humber Region.
Training usually lasts for 5 years. This can be reduced for those candidates who already have an MPH or PhD. It is delivered in 3 phases:
Academic Phase. The first year of training is usually spent taking an academic course (full or part time) together with some time in a PCT and preparing for Part A of the MFPH examination.
After successfully passing Part A MFPH, trainees undertake a 3 month attachment with the Health Protection Agency. A successful outcome of this placement can result in being attached to the Public Health On-call Rota. Further time is spent at a PCT and in preparing for Part B of the MFPH examination.
Phase three of the programme allows trainees to develop special interests and to attend special placements. These include, further HPA attachments, Academic Attachments, work with Local Authorities, the Department of Health, Regional Health Authority, Prison and offender health settings etc.
Less than full time training is supported across the Deanery.
The Yorkshire & Humber Deanery covers North, East, South and West Yorkshire and includes large cities such as Leeds and Sheffield, smaller towns and rural areas and areas of significant affluence and deprivation.
