This programme emphasises the international dimensions of health and disease. It captures the need to work together to tackle health inequalities to improve health around the world.
Travel, trade and migration have made health an increasingly global issue. As a result, health inequalities both within and between countries are changing and increasing. There is thus increasing demand for dynamic health leaders who can operate in today's global challenges.
You work regularly in intercontinental teams with students from McMaster University (Canada), Thammasat University (Thailand), Manipal University (India), Ahfad University for Women (Sudan) and Rosario University (Colombia).
