Masters of Public Health

Academic training in public health is mainly done within the department of Public Health and Epidemiology at the University of Birmingham.  The foundation of this training at the start of the programme is the Master of Public Health (MPH) course.  This modular course covers a broad range of the theoretical aspects of public health and is completed by a research project.  If trainees already have a relevant qualification, they do not need to sit the MPH and can start in the second year of training.

Details of the MPH course can be found on the University of Birmingham website

The Public Health, Epidemiology and Biostatistics Unit at the University of Birmingham plays an important role in training for public health professionals in the West Midlands, including trainees in Public Health.
