International Forum on Public Health Education

This international conference will take place on November 2 and 3 at the Lister Centre on the University of Alberta campus in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Public health crosses multiple fields of study, such as health, social and human sciences. Over the last century, the field has been constantly evolving and has seen dramatic achievements, as well as new and complex challenges that threaten the health of people

In this changing landscape, developing leaders who can think critically and work collaboratively to address our world’s most pressing public health issues is more important than ever. And preparing tomorrow’s public health leaders is as vital as enhancing the skills of today’s public health professionals.

So, how do we as public health researchers, practitioners and professionals continue to evolve and adapt? What is the vital role of programs and schools of public health in this endeavor?

During this conference we will consider the following issues:

  • What are common challenges within public health education and how can we overcome them?
  • How can those in practice-based and academic institutions collaborate to prepare public health professionals?
  • How do innovative teaching methods provide effective program delivery and well-prepared graduates?
  • What is the future direction for public health education?

Leaders in public health education from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and Latin America will present recent developments in their institutions and countries.

Join us as we explore these items together.

This conference is for public health researchers, professionals, practitioners and educators from academic institutions, governmental and non-governmental agencies, and industry. Those with expertise and interest in program design and delivery for adult learners may also be interested.
