Do you want to launch a career in international public health?

With a focus on practical application and interactive training, multinational participants benefit from engaging with experts from various fields and with a diverse student body to advance their position in the health sector.

To find solutions to today’s complex global health challenges, core competencies for understanding and reacting to health challenges in an integrated way are essential, alongside with skills for working in global and interdisciplinary partnerships. Drawing from its global network and its experience in research, service provision, policy advice and education and training, Swiss TPH offers a unique study environment at a world-leading institute in global health for those looking to improve international health and the well-being of populations at local, national and international levels.

To achieve an optimal learning experience, the course employs a diverse spectrum of educational methods, such as individual and group work, lectures, seminars, demonstrations, tutorials and visits, among other activities. The focus is on a lively exchange of experiences, ideas and mutual learning among participants and facilitators, alike. The course participants and teaching team reflect various disciplines, countries and experiences.

The course covers concepts and research methods (social science, epidemiology, statistics), health problems and responses (determinants of health, reproductive and child health, communicable and non-communicable diseases), health system management and transferable skills needed in managerial positions (information, communication and management strategies).

The course is accredited by the University of Basel as a Diploma of Advanced Studies, and within the European Network for Education (tropEd) as a core module for the Master in International Health.
