School of Public Health and Community Medicine

Welcome to the School of Public Health and Community Medicine, where research is done and education provided in the area of community medicine and public health.

Our vision is to help improve public health at local, regional and global levels. We do so through high-quality education, innovative research and practical application of the research in the community at large. We run three popular Master’s programmes — in public health, global health and innovation and entrepreneurship — that attract students worldwide. In addition, we provide freestanding courses and commissioned education. There is close cooperation between our education and our research. Our researchers study public health issues associated with numerous areas, from work environment and mental ill-health to alcohol consumption, migration and climate change.
