This programme covers aid provision across a spectrum of hostile environments encompassing natural disasters, man-made disasters and conflict in all its forms. Providing care in these environments needs an understanding of the situation, and how this constricts and limits what can be achieved. This understanding bridges the fields of medicine, politics, economics, history and international relations.  You will enjoy fascinating practical sessions working alongside module director Mr. Steve Mannion, a Consultant Trauma & Orthopaedic surgeon, who works in conflict zones and resource constrained settings across the world.

Global health is a broad discipline that attracts multidisciplinary involvement from those who wish to pursue an internationally focused career in development, policy, education, research or humanitarian relief. This will include doctors and other health professionals, as well as a range of people with an interest in governance, management, law, politics, economics, policy, science, anthropology, philosophy and ethics. 

This Global Health MSc is a broad ranging practical and clinical course that covers many different aspects of global health practice and policy. We have excellent local, regional and international links, enabling our students to complete global health projects in many different locations around the world. The university also shares its campus with one of the largest NHS teaching hospitals, and many world-leading clinicians teach on our courses. 

This stimulating and vibrant programme will give you the skills and knowledge necessary to understand, interpret and help solve critical global health challenges, empowering you to pursue an exciting international career as a global health practitioner or policy maker. The programme will also give you the ability to make a real difference to the pursuit of health equity and global social justice.
