The International Masters of Public Health and Community Medicine

Reflecting on the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s commitment to benefit the world, the university runs its International Masters of Public Health program (IMPH), which is a 12-month Masters course that provides an innovative comprehensive multi-disciplinary training experience, preparing graduates to take up key positions as teachers and leaders in the field of public health.

The IMPH programme is an intensive course which helps the students develop knowledge, skills and expertise in a broad range of disciplines, including:


Control of Communicable Diseases, Environmental and Occupational Health, Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Family Planning, Health Care Reforms, Health Economics and Administration, Health Promotion and Planning of Community-based Programs, Mother and Child Health, Nutrition, Food Security and Combating Malnutrition, Research Methodologies, Sociological and Behavioural Factors Related to Health.


All students also participate in an extensive community-orientated Primary Care Workshop. The lecturers work closely with the students to prioritize the health problems and challenges of their region and design realistic and evidence-based interventions along with evaluation plans. The students will then implement these approaches upon their return home.
