Overview

The MPH course targets medical graduates with an MBBS degree and non-medical graduates having a Bachelors degree in science. The mission of the Faculty of Medicine is to provide quality programmes of professional education to serve the Sri Lankan nation and contribute to its health, well-being, prosperity, and to the development of health care and rehabilitation.

The objectives of starting this course are:

  • To structure the programme based on well-accepted international norms in public health education and practice enunciated by the Council for Education in Public Health in the USA and the WHO.
  • To design the contents to reflect the latest developments in the profession.
  • To integrate the academic and practical skills of the programme with changing practices in the public health, educational and political arenas.
  • To meet student, professional and community needs for quality education of public health practitioners at an international standard.

It is proposed that the curriculum for this course is organized on a modular basis, with a

credit system. This is the commonest curriculum framework adopted by most schools of public health that run multi-professional programmes. It affords flexibility and allows the programme to cater to the individual needs of the participating students. This master's degree programme will be a two-year programme comprising course work and a research/service component. It will lead to a Master's in Public Health.

The curriculum modules include theoretical and self-directed learning, epidemiology and public health practise experience, and research and skill development in a variety of public health settings especially in the field of epidemiology at institutional and community level.

Name of programme: Master of Public Health (Epidemiology)
Medium of instruction: English
Awarding Body : University of Kelaniya

 

Programme Organization

According to the Sri Lankan Credit and Qualifications Framework, a one-year Masters degree with only a taught component should have a minimum of 30 credits at Level P3, while a two-year Masters with both taught and research components, should have a minimum of 60 credits (inclusive of 30 credits at Level P3). Furthermore, the course could be modularised in a manner that leaves provision for the award of a Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma to students who wish to undertake shorter courses.

The following is proposed:
Certificate course - 30 credits
Diploma - 45 credits
MPH - 60 credits
Initially, specialization (major) will be possible only in Epidemiology.
