We work with our members to train the public health leaders of the future, through our MPhils, PhD opportunities, career development training and fellowship programmes
The Department of Public Health and Primary Care is responsible for designing, delivering and coordinating the public health and primary care teaching themes, in conjunction with the School of Clinical Medicine curriculum. Undergraduate public health teaching is provided for University of Cambridge medical students (approx. 270 students).
