Taught postgraduate programmes at Durham aim to provide students with a dynamic, critical understanding of their chosen health specialty. Working alongside peers, School of Medicine and Health experts and practitioners in the local area, our students will develop advanced skills in collaborative, creative and effective health practice.
Through our unique collaborative agreements with the Wolfson Research Institute and the North East Public Health Observatory, we offer highly inter-professional contact and access to the application of the principles taught on our courses.
The Wolfson Research Institute research fellows undertake cutting edge research on medicine, health and the wellbeing of people and places, with a special interest in the people of the Northeast of England. They contribute to the teaching of the taught masters courses, play a key role in strengthening academic and practitioner links across the region and contribute to policy formation and implementation within the University, across the region and nation.
The North East Public Health Observatory connects the theory of our Taught Masters programmes to the practice of public health improvement, healthcare treatment and healthcare management in the North East and beyond. Utilizing our local connections, the School of Medicine and Health is actively involved in the Observatory's task of providing intelligence on project work and health improvement initatives.
