Aide à la réussite

Due to the manageable size of the class, close interactions between students, and academic and administrative staff are offered. The students, who come from various contexts, may face different challenges but also highly benefit from mutual enrichment. Teachers are encouraged to develop interactive and dynamic learning. For students facing difficulties in learning, individual support may be provided.

Présentation

This programme is intended for public health professionals and health managers, who work at different levels of the health system. The main goal is to provide a large degree of autonomy in the use of public health methods to achieve the overall objective: “ensure methodological approaches and public health decision- makings, consistent with the needs of people, communities and individuals.” This specialized master thus highlights the methodologies for analysing and investigating major health issues, especially in developing countries, within a global health approach.

The programme consists in lectures, exercises as well as in-group and individual assignments and presentations.

At the end of the programme, the Master's thesis consists in producing an individual work which will be an integration of the several methods and concepts viewed during the year. It will be based on preexisting databases (biostatistics, epidemiology, public health systems…). A PhD project may also be prepared for the thesis evaluation.

This training aims to strengthen the link between academic research and applied topics such as public health programmes and health systems management. It gives graduates knowledge and skills to undertake public health research as well as to provide leadership and technical support in public health programmes and policy, particularly in middle- and low-income countries.

Partnership with the University of Liverpool (qualitative methods)

Some lectures are given by invited experts, especially from middle- and low-income countries.
