The course is embedded within the Oxford Centre for Tropical Medicine and Global Health, Nuffield Department of Medicine. The course aims to develop knowledge and understanding of the major global health problems in resource-limited settings and their potential solutions; knowledge and skills in research techniques applied in the analysis of global health problems, including quantitative and qualitative research methods, with opportunities for training in additional specialist fields; capacity to critically appraise evidence in global health; skills and practical experience in researching specific health problems in resource-limited contexts. The first term will consist of core topics on research methods, an overview of some major global health challenges, and topics related to the research and practice of global health. Core modules include: Paradigms and Tools for Global Health (including epidemiology, statistics, health economics and social sciences for health) Challenges and Change in International Health Global Health Research and Practice Core material will be assessed by two unseen papers in Week 0 of Trinity term. During the second term, in addition to some continued core content, students select two of the following six module options for further study: All options, except Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases, will be assessed by a 3,000 to 4,000 word essay in early April. Assessment for the Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases module will require submission of a computer program or a piece of mathematical analysis (both of which are the equivalent of 1,000 words) accompanied by a short report of 2,000 to 3,000 words. The third term will involve a funded eight-week placement with a global health project in a resource limited setting. Projects represent the range of subjects covered in the course. The department will have a series of projects to choose from each year, hosted by partners in various geographic regions. The research project will form the basis of a 10,000-word dissertation to be submitted eight weeks after return from placement.
