Six European universities collaborate to deliver EuroPubHealth Plus (EPH+), an innovative, integrated 2-year Master course (120 ECTS) for students wishing to engage in a public health career. Emphasizing at its core the urgent need to build sustainable health systems whilst addressing health inequalities, EPH+ provides multi-disciplinary training delivered in a unique multi-cultural environment. EPH+ is an ideal programme for acquiring the competences necessary for innovative public health professionals, leading evidence-based decision making at the local, national or global levels in the 21st century.The 1st year of the course is dedicated to the “Foundations of public health” offered in English language by the School of Health & Related Research in Sheffield (UK) or in Spanish by the Andalusian School of Public Health (Spain). The 2nd year comprises taught courses, an internship of 2 to 4 months, the drafting and defence of a master thesis. Students choose one of seven pathways which focus on specific public health functions or disciplines: • Health Promotion (University of Granada/Andalusian School of Public Health, taught in Spanish), Spain;• Leadership in European Public Health (University of Maastricht, English), The Netherlands;• Governance of Health Systems in transition (Jagiellonian University Medical College of Krakow, English), Poland;• Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences (EHESP School of Public Health, English), France;• Advanced Biostatistics and Epidemiology (EHESP, English), France;• Law Health and Ethics (Rennes 1 University/EHESP, French), France;• Health Policy and Programme Management (Rennes1 University/EHESP, French), FranceWhatever their pathway, all EPH+ students take part in joint activities throughout the year via web-based learning. At the end of each academic year, students, consortium faculty and international scholars assemble in Rennes (France) for the 3 week integration module, which is geared towards developing crucial cross-cutting competencies and project management skills.EPH+ is aimed at students with a strong interest in applied public health. Their academic background may be in clinical disciplines (medicine, nursing, pharmacy), social sciences (sociology, economics), law, management or engineering.
