Master’s in Public Health (MPH).

Our school currently supports all of our registrars to complete a MPH, if not previously undertaken.  This learning opportunity introduces registrars to key public health concepts and provides the broad range of knowledge and skills necessary to practice public health as a specialist.  Taught modules, consisting of compulsory core and a choice of elective modules, are studied, in addition to undertaking a dissertation project, in which independent research skills are put to practice in an in-depth piece of work

A MPH can be undertaken at the Universities of York or Sheffield. Alternatively, a MSc in Epidemiology and Biostatistics is available at the University of Leeds.  The structure, content and delivery of the courses vary between the universities and registrars are asked to consider which Master’s programme best suits their needs and which to therefore apply for.

4 days or equivalent pro rata is allocated during the first year for registrars to attend taught MPH modules and complete relevant assignments/ dissertation.
