of the University of Geneva is a two year full time programme which aims to study contemporary health issues from interdisciplinary and international perspectives. The MScGH mission is to provide students the toolbox to understand and analyse health issues whose determinants are interlinked and whose complexity transcends borders and sectors of activity.
In our interdependent world, significant health issues such as emerging and remerging infectious diseases, the rise of chronic conditions, and the impact of climate change on health are intersectoral and transnational challenges which require collaboration and cooperation among multiple actors. To respond to these challenges, new educational opportunities are needed in addition to traditional training programmes in medicine or public health.
The MScGH seeks to combine the most relevant approaches on global health drawing on the perspectives of all relevant academic disciplines and global health actors based in Geneva. The MScGH is specifically designed to take advantage of the rich international environment of Geneva. It provides an opportunity to study where many health issues are discussed at the global level and to accomplish practical training in different setting such as NGOs and international organizations.
