Course content

Social determinants and the consequences for health and wellbeing of inequalities have been an essential part of the understanding of public health doctors when dealing with health issues at population level. Today, with the work of Marmot and most recently Picketty, there is a greater awareness than ever in academia, medicine, and politics of health inequalities. There are, therefore, opportunities at present for those concerned with these issues to make a contribution to addressing global health challenges.

Students can specialise in areas as diverse as trade in health, global burden of disease, evidence based policy making, pharmaceuticals and clinical trials, the anthropology of health, and ethics.
