As an experienced professional, you are looking for ways to increase and broaden your knowledge about the various aspects of public health. Deciding exactly what training you need, and in what timeframe, is no easy task. Fitting a new training programme into a busy work schedule requires a substantial investment, in both time and money.

Based on biological and clinical fundamentals, we have established a bio-psycho-social and cultural model for public health. This model seeks to maintain and improve the general level of public health, to train health professionals including clinicians, and to develop an international vision for public health that integrates sustainable development.

This mindset has led us to propose several research and training programmes, at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels. This website describes these programmes, as well as other activities at the Institute. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require further information.
