Welcome to the homepage of the Doctoral Programme Public Health!

Public health is a multidisciplinary research area integrating medical and other sciences to collect and to assess data related to health and disease. With a view to demonstrate historical and current impacts of social, environmental and occupational factors on health and disease, to analyse the importance of these relationships at the population level and to design and assess public and occupational preventive measures, health promotion programs, improved health care systems, and programs of behavioural risk reduction. It is the aim of the Doctoral Program of Applied Medical Science on "Public Health" to train young scientists and professionals of Public Health in its broadest sense for independent and collaborative scientific work in medical and associated professions. The symbiosis of science and practice will be accomplished by combining scientific experience and guidance with practice seminars. As a result, graduates will be prepared to apply scientific and practical methods in his/her profession in order to continuously advance professional practice and effectiveness, to take responsibility for improving public health and to promote it by application-oriented research projects.
