The MPH (M&L) aims to provide students with in depth understanding of issues in the management and government of public health, and apply this to the specific challenges in delivery, planning and management of health services in their national context.
It is suited to clinical and non-clinical professionals who aspire to be leaders in their health care organisations and systems, either in the UK or in their own country. It will help clinicians understand the world of the manager and managers the world of the clinician.
A major strength is its combination of public health, management, health services research and health economics. You’ll learn management skills and take optional modules from the MPH course – a combination not available from an MBA or a pure MPH or MSc programme.
