Continuing Professional Development and Short Courses
"The Continuing Professional Development Programme enables participants to refresh their skills and to keep in touch with the latest research and knowledge underlying efforts to improve public health and global health. An important aspect of the School's teaching role is to be able to respond to the needs of individuals who require short specialised training and study opportunities. Such individuals may not have the time to study for a year in London, nor to undertake a distance learning degree, or may wish to undertake more selective study."
