Location Heidelberg Course focus : International Health Focuses on poverty-related health problems in low and middle income countries. It includes the promotion of health, prevention and treatment of disease. Studies of health systems, health economics and financing, health policy, and management of health services are central.

The MScIH was developed with these factors in mind. Teaching Approach Participatory teaching and learning methods are the underlying didactic concepts of the course. Participants are expected to take an active part throughout the course, e.g., small group work, individual study … [Read more...] about Master of Science in International Health (Heidelberg)
