The University of Edinburgh is glad to announce the application for its Fully-Funded Global Health Scholarships at University of Edinburgh in UK 2018. The University’s Global Health Academy has been awarded 5 fully funded studentships across five online Masters programmes within the domain of Global Health.
The Global Health Academy initiative cuts across the traditional vertical health structures moving to novel integrated health systems training. Our aim is to promote a global community of practice where students can access multiple strands of knowledge from many different experts to tackle some of the biggest challenges in the 21st century.
For example, non-communicable diseases are changing the face of African, Asian and Latin American health and healthcare and require not just disease specialists but experts in logistics, in training and policy and in technologies especially, e- and m-health, in order to create stronger community health. Students taking these courses find them rewarding in the opportunity they present to engage with professionals from industry, medicine, policy and research.
