Master of Science in Public Health - MSPH
The Aga Khan University’s Department of Community Health Sciences in the Medical College has launched the Master of Science in Public Health (MSPH) Programme this year.
The MSPH programme has been developed to meet the ever-evolving need for trained public health professionals in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs) of the region, especially Pakistan. With a large health systems workforce required in the public and private sectors as well as academia, this high-quality innovative curriculum will develop public health leaders. These leaders are empowered to manage and solve the many health problems faced by the population of Pakistan and countries in the region. The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted even more acutely that well-trained public health professionals are critical within Global South and Global North countries, proving the relevance of the programme globally.
A powerful platform that addresses population-based health issues and a global network to spearhead a career in public health.
The programme is recognised by the Higher Education Commission (HEC) in Pakistan and is taught by HEC-recognised faculty.
The curriculum's competencies are based on recommendations from the Council for Accreditation of School of Public Health and Programmes of Public Health (CEPH) USA.
The breadth and depth of knowledge through multidisciplinary integrated concepts, self-directed learning, inquiry, critical analysis and expression of thoughts.
The programme offers candidates the choice to complete the two-year programme in extended time i.e. either in three or four years, and class timings have also been attractively structured to accomodate to busy schedules of working professionals.
