Studies

The Institute of Public Health and Clinical Nutrition offers training in Public Health in English. Our internationally recognised Master 's Degree Programme in Public Health (MPH), which has been running for almost 20 years, is at the forefront of integrating the global dimensions of public health. We also offer public health training for medical students. This training provides the necessary theoretical background and tools for health promotion in a cross-cultural learning environment. Our educational atmosphere is characterised by interaction between Finnish and international students from different educational and cultural backgrounds.

Students on the MPH programme first take the core public health studies, after which they can choose to specialise in any of the four options: Epidemiology; Public Health Nutrition; Globe, Culture and Public Health; or Health Promotion in Nursing. 

To contribute to the wider community, we examine health-related issues from social, cultural and global aspects. Students are trained in areas such as: public health, health promotion, epidemiology, nutrition, community medicine, geriatrics, occupational health and environmental health.
