Public health and primary care

Public health and primary care CPD courses

We offer training for professionals who want to continue their learning and development in public health.

Our professional development programme offers an innovative approach to learning, enabling us to meet training needs for health professionals interested in a career in public health or those seeking new skills.

Contemporary public health practice requires practitioners to be adaptable and flexible, with a broad experience of a range of subject areas.

Our CPD programme enables professionals to register for any of our single course units and study alongside students on one of our full degree programmes. Students receive a transcript on successful completion.

There is also the opportunity to request accreditation (APL) of these course units towards a complete degree at The University of Manchester or elsewhere.

"As a clinician, I am always looking for ways of helping people beyond what my medicine and surgical procedures can do. The MPH has enabled me to look at medical practice with both clinical and public health lenses."
