Masters for Health SectorWatch
I have two points I am hoping for advice for regarding postgraduate study.
1. For work in cross-cultural health policy, what would you say would be the most valuable post-grad degree/most likely to be sought by employers..I am looking into Medical Anthropology, Global Health/Public Health, Global Studies with Medical Anthropology?
2. I had been accepted into UCL, but have decided to study abroad, hopefully in Scandinavia...what is your opinion on the most reputable universities in this field from Uni of Copenhagen, uni of aarhus, Karolinska Institute, Lund University, Gothenberg Uni, Stockholm Uni?
Any advice would be great!
Need more help on going postgrad?
Karolinska is well known for its MSc Health. Concentrations include epidemiology, biostatistics, health economics and interdisciplinary behavioral sciences. Karolinska is medical research driven, well dialed in international research with leading institutes abroad and courses tend to be on the analytical side. But graduates can work in policy analysis, health education & administration. Small intake and good staff to student ratio. Very competitive application.
I heard good things about Goethenburg Uni as the course is managed by the Nordic School of Public Health. It is a traditional MPH. Uppsala Uni has a MSc International Health and merits a closer look.
I think Lund Uni's course benefits from the Swedish Institute of Health Economics' nearby location. Lund's MPH looks well designed with its 3 core areas. But it looks more quintessential syllabus of epidemiology and health policy, less Medical Anthropology.
