The Public Health programme provides a strong foundation for understanding public health, its related research and – depending on the choice of track – global health issues, public health nutrition, epidemiology, or health promotion in nursing science. The programme is at the forefront of integrating the global dimensions of public health and offering related training for medical students. This training provides the necessary theoretical background and tools for health promotion in a cross-cultural learning environment.
Students first take the core public health studies, after which they can choose to specialise in any of the four options: Epidemiology; Public Health Nutrition; Globe, Culture and Public Health; or Health Promotion in Nursing.
