The CHiPH is committed to developing its teaching strategies, and welcomes students from all disciplines and all parts of the world. The Centre runs a history and health study module in January/February each year, which provides an introductory survey of the history of public health and health services in the UK, and internationally. The module also provides training in competencies necessary for the UK Faculty of Public Health examinations. The module is available to in-house M.Sc students, and also as a short course. It runs in the morning on Thursdays and Fridays over 5 weeks. Further details
