The School of Nursing and Healthcare Leadership at the University of Bradford is looking for a dedicated individual to undertake the role of external examiner for our Master of Public Health programme to commence in September 2021. This programme is designed for those looking to move into public health, policy or community development at a senior level, and is suitable for candidates from diverse undergraduate study backgrounds and / or professional experience. The programme is currently offered as an on-campus experience, a fully distance learning offer is being developed and will be launched in September 2022.
The programme develops students into future healthcare leaders who understand health policy, community change, human behaviour change, or health service design.
The programme places emphasis on leadership and strategic thinking, developed through comprehensive qualitative and quantitative research, analysis and evaluation. It is tailored to the demographic and epidemiological challenges of contemporary urban societies – the diseases of affluence and ageing, and the marginalized and vulnerable populations produced by these kinds of settings.
The Bradford MPH provides training in public policy, health care practice development, epidemiology, and community development that focuses on skills for change, making it a must-have qualification for those wishing to address the contemporary challenges of public health or undertake research in the public health field.
The programme has been mapped onto the Faculty of Public Health syllabus for the Part A examinations of the Faculty of Public Health and up to Level 7 of the Public Health Skills and Career Framework (Public Health Resource, 2008).
