Overview

EUCLID, an intergovernmental treaty-based institution with a university mandate, offers to select students from the general public an online PhD in global health and health systems with a focus on Global South issues.

It is, to date, the only PhD program in this field offered by an international intergovernmental organization. Its purpose is to prepare highly qualified public health professionals able to serve in civil service, international organizations, health care institutions, as well as non-governmental organizations globally.

This program is considered a sandwich program, which means that several courses are taken at People's Uni (The People's Open Access Education Initiative), an approved and specialized EUCLID partner institution.

Academic Presentation

Public Health is often studied from a national-central perspective. Few programs are truly international in scope so as to fully prepare graduates for global civil service careers that will engage a wide variety of global health challenges, including malaria, HIV, drug-resistance, diet-related diseases, etc.

To answer this challenge, EUCLID has designed a world-class doctoral curriculum, which is presented here with full documentation of syllabus and faculty resources, as well as total tuition. This documentation will enable potential students to determine if this program is suitable and aligned with their career objectives.

AUDIENCE | INTEREST GROUPS

This unique PhD program focuses on the practical and policy aspects of global public health rather than the advancement of purely theoretical knowledge.

This doctoral program was primarily designed to serve civil servants of EUCLID’s Participating States, but it is also open to the general public as an excellent route to pursue a career within inter-governmental bodies, NGOs and the public sector.

Thanks to its low tuition and institutional relationships, and because it covers such topics as health systems strengthening, malaria and tropical diseases in-depth, it is expected to be of special interest to Global South/African students.

Requirements

Applicants should have a relevant Master’s degree (typically labeled MPH) issued by an institution listed in the UNESCO-IAU handbook/database. Similar or related backgrounds with adequate professional experience may be considered Government-sponsored applicants (who are already government staff) may be admitted without the required educational credential if their level of education and experience is deemed sufficient. EUCLID may require these participants to complete bridge courses prior to enrolling in the program. Fluency in English (spoken and written) is required and will be tested. Students are expected to be in a position to dedicate 10 to 15 effective hours of study on a weekly basis.
