About

Students on the MSc Public Health for Development from London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicin have substantial experience of planning or implementing public health programs, of teaching or public-health-related research and wish to hone their critical professional skills. They have been based in low- or middle-income countries for two years or more, engaged in public health efforts in a range of contexts which may include Ministries of Health or NGOs in stable states, conflict areas or humanitarian relief.  We complement formal teaching with peer learning that builds on this professional experience and frames knowledge of public health within a development context. Students participate in an award-winning seminar series in which they examine their public health experience in light of material studied on the program.
