The MSc in International Health and Tropical Medicine is a full-time one-year multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary programme examining major challenges to the health of populations in resource-limited contexts. The course is embedded within the Oxford Centre for Tropical Medicine and Global Health and benefits from the Centre's reputation and expertise in Global Health research and practice.

In this videos, Professor Sarah Rowland-Jones and Dr Proochista Ariana explain what the course is about

Course aims

  • develop students' knowledge and understanding of the major global health problems in resource limited settings and their potential solutions;
  • improve their knowledge and skills in research techniques applied in the analysis of global health problems, including quantitative and qualitative research methods, health policy and systems research and public health, with opportunities for training in additional specialist fields;
  • nurture their capacity to critically appraise evidence in global health;
  • develop their skills and practical experience in researching specific health problems.

Upon completion of the course, students will be equipped to continue to advance their knowledge, understanding and skills further in research or professional practice in the field of global health. In the future we anticipate our graduates will assume leadership and research positions within major international health organisations and ministries of health.
