Teaching on disability is undertaken through lectures and seminars on MSc courses, and a series of internal and external short courses held at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.
"I was attracted to the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine by the content of the work and research being conducted by the International Centre on Evidence in Disability (ICED) which I have been subscribing to since its inception."
– Israel (MSc student with a disability)
“ICED represents a rich and diverse collaboration, with disability and the quest for equality, as the foundation for its innovative and practical based research activities. At doctoral level, a great environment from which to learn and contribute!”
– Mark (DrPh student)
“Whilst looking for an institution to study a research degree and take my career to the next level, LSHTM stood out thanks to the International Centre for Evidence on Disability. It said to me that the school is at the forefront of both existing and emerging trends in global health – most other leading global health universities do not seem to have caught on to the great need for research and study in this field”
– Antony (DrPh student)
