Presentación

The MPH (HTA) is a strand of the Masters of Public Health (MPH) programme for those students who wish to specialise in public health with health technology assessment.

This multidisciplinary MPH provides firm grounding in the range of skills and disciplines essential to public health and health technology assessment. This programme will allow you to combine the benefits of completing an MPH degree with the specialism of health technology assessment and evidence-based healthcare. Health technology assessment is a rapidly expanding area, and employment prospects are good.

Requisitos

An upper second-class degree (or equivalent) in Medicine, a life science or another relevant subject; an interest in public health or epidemiology; experience of working in public health or a related field would be an advantage. Recent graduates with limited relevant experience may apply if they can demonstrate an interest in public health. Students seeking entry to the Certificate or Diploma programmes can also be considered if they have a relevant professional qualification, for example RGN, or experience of working in a health protection, public health or related field.
