Content

The programme is designed to equip those already working in global health and development, or those planning to work with international and national health agencies, with the tools, knowledge and skills to engage with complex problems related to equitable and just health and well-being.

It will also be of immense value for those interested in global development and aid, and for those interested in careers in health journalism, or work in international business in the health and social care fields, and in corporate social responsibility and sustainability.

The programme will utilise the particular expertise that the University of Edinburgh and its global partners offers in global health including its medical, nursing and biomedical excellence.

On completion of this certificate, you will have an understanding of the processes and procedures by which the global health agenda is shaped. You will also possess the analytical and conceptual skills necessary to critically evaluate the nature of global health issues and to understand the interconnectedness of health with social, environmental, psychological and economic determinants.

You can exit at the end of 2 years with PgProfDev Global Health Challenges.
