Short Course Programme Execution and Master of Science Re-Accreditation
The University of Heidelberg, Institute of Public Health, is offering a one year
Master of Science in International Health course and a programme of Short Courses
in International Health, both at postgraduate level. Several of the short courses are
also part of the residential track of the Heidelberger MScIH. (
Most short courses are organised as two weeks full time studies on selected topics
(e.g. Disease Control, Quality Management, Consultancy Skills, Public Health and
Disasters etc).
The group composition in the courses is a mixture of our Master students and
tropEd students ( who take the courses as part of our/a Master and
people who take the courses as individual further training. Most of the latter group
are sent by their employers. The participants overall are coming mainly from
Europe, Africa and Asia.
In 2011 we have short courses running back to back from January to the end of
July, then again in September before the new Master course starts with the Core
Course in October.
At the same time, the Master is in the process of undergoing an external reaccreditation (Aquinn).
The aim of this mobility project would be, through the support of the visiting staff
from Ateneo in the preparation, execution and evaluation of the on-going short
courses, as well as with the re-accreditation process of the Master (evaluation of
past years, planning of future MScIH, compiling of necessary documents etc), to
tutor the visiting staff in the procedures and established structures at Heidelberg
and to benefit from her expertise in these areas for potential improvements.
