The University of Haifas International Masters Program in Global Health Leadership and Administration is dedicated to providing students with a strong foundation from which to critically examine current global health challenges. The program nurtures high levels of sophistication, excellent communication skills, and a deep knowledge of public health and global health, as well as prepares future practitioners and researchers for leadership roles in settings across the globe.
The program gives students a solid background of theoretical knowledge as well as hands-on field experience. It consists of seminars and courses taught by leading academics in their field of specialty, as well as a practicum that gives students an opportunity to integrate coursework in a real-world setting.
Why Israel?There is no better place to learn about global health than in a foreign country. As a culturally diverse society, Israel, and specifically the city of Haifa, is a unique environment for a program whose goal is to enable students to understand how disparities in health care status and health care delivery unfold. Recognizing Israels successful modern health care system, the health of its population, its focus on high technology, its globalization and its location between East and West, it is an exciting and unique place to pursue a masters degree in public health. Israel provides excellent field study opportunities that allow students to see how diverse and intriguing methods and strategies to manage public health issues related to multiculturalism actually develop and take root. It is a real-time hands-on working laboratory for advanced international and Israeli students, offering encounters with ongoing public health initiatives to achieve equality in health in multi-cultural contexts.
Upon completion of the program, students will be awarded a Master of Public Health.
