Content

Population health science is an emerging area of health research that is focussed on the multiple determinants of health outcomes and their impact on a population. It’s role is to measure, quantify and describe the health status and health inequalities of populations through understanding the interactions of the physical and social environment, individual behaviour, resource allocation, investment and genetics over the life course and through time.

To do this effectively requires a range of approaches and techniques that link determinants to outcomes and ultimately allows for the identification and refining of novel population health interventions that are grounded in best practice and are cost effective. The aim of this Population Health Sciences programme is to provide you with the knowledge and skills relating to population health as an emerging and active area of research.

You can exit after stage 1 with PgCert Population Health Sciences.

You may exit after stage 2 with PgDip Population Health Sciences.
