Promote the development of specific competences and strengthen the capacity to identify, assess and react in an adequate way to health problems of populations.
Overview: The Master in Public Health, results from a partnership between the University of Porto Medical School and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences Abel Salazar, emphasises the description and analysis of national health problems, detailing the study of etiologic and intervention factors, either environmental, psychosocial or biological in nature. Learning and application of the methods from epidemiology, biostatistics and social sciences are approached in depth, promoting the interconnection of research and practice, preventive and curative, at individual and collective levels. The Master is mainly attended by health professionals, with different backgrounds and from several regions, namely from CPLP, with the aim of entering or progressing on the academic career and enhancing and updating professional skills. The Master comprises a team of highly qualified faculty as well as other administrative research resources, and facilities, including those available at the Institute of Public Health, that contribute to the quality of the program. The Master has the collaboration of several international partners and has close relations with European networks for research and training in Public Health, namely as a member of ASPHER (The Association of Schools of Public Health in the European Region).
