Learning Outcomes

Through working closely with their supervisors, mentor panels, CGH partners, and fellow doctoral researchers, our PhD students emerge from the programme confident in their ability to lead global health research. As Global Health doctoral researchers, candidates become integral members of the CGH research team and are absorbed into various ongoing research projects in the Centre. As a result, students learn the value of interdisciplinary research as a means of driving an evidence-base for practical and policy-based action to improve the effectiveness of public health services. By developing the interface between biological science, social sciences and public health, the programme seeks to create more effective and efficient platforms for service delivery and to address the challenges posed by universal health problems. While enrolled in the PhD Global Health, students gain valuable experience and are expected to contribute to:

  • Research grant writing and submission to funding bodies
  • Academic writing and publication
  • Critical thinking and conceptual framing of international development work
  • Conducting research in resource constrained settings and/or with vulnerable groups
  • Post-graduate teaching and supervision through engagement with the MSc Global Health programme
