Course content

High quality primary health care and public health systems are a cornerstone of an efficient, effective, and equitable health system. Many countries are seeking to shift from a hospital-led health care system to one characterised by population focus and a strong primary care sector. The primary health care model provides the internationally established norm for attaining the World Health Organization’s commitment to 'health for all'.

This vision for developing public health and primary care is to build a vibrant inter-professional and interdisciplinary learning community of primary care practitioners who will work together under the guidance of expert tutors to explore how the principles and practice of effective primary health care may be achieved in different countries, health care systems, and local settings. This MSc programme will be of particular interest if you are a medical and clinical practitioner, a civil servant, or a public health practitioner.

This MSc programme is part of a wider programme of study in global health within the Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry. The programmes are directed by Dr David McCoy, and a multidisciplinary team of clinical and non-clinical academics.

The teaching is informed by a concern for social justice, and offers a multidisciplinary analysis of the current global challenges for public health and health policy.
