UCL Health and Society Summer School: Social Determinants of Health

3rd to 7th July 2017, London, United Kingdom.

The one week non-residential UCL Health and Society summer school “Social Determinants of Health” will be held from 3rd to 7th July 2017 at UCL in central London. The summer school is organised by the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health. It provides an in-depth assessment of the social determinants of health from a global research, policy and governance perspective. Participants will have numerous opportunities for discussion over the one week course.

Professor Sir Michael Marmot will open the summer school with a presentation on the social determinants of health and close the week with a lecture and discussion on national and international policy development.

Who is the summer school designed for?

The summer school is designed for two types of participants: those who already work in the field of public health and who want to refresh their knowledge of population health, and those who are considering a career in public health or related research such as social epidemiology and health policy (national and global). Our course is multi-disciplinary. There will be an opportunity to network with other participants prior to arrival at the summer school, details of this will be made available once payment is received.
