Public Health Teaching
The Institute of Public Health is delighted to launch their first summer course specifically for international students at PUJ.
The program will provide an excellent opportunity to show the institute’s international and local Colombian expertise in the field of Public Health.
It will explore the state of public health in the context of the recent conflict and in relation to the diverse social and economic factors across Colombia’s varied geography that impact health. Topics will include the national health profile and disease burden, the epidemiology of disease in Colombia, the evolution of the public healthcare system, and the mental health status of Colombian civilians and formally active combatants post-trauma.
