Book DescriptionMastering Public Health: A Postgraduate Guide to Examinations and Revalidation, Second Edition is an essential study aid for all those preparing for postgraduate, masters, and higher examinations in public health. Now updated and revised for the second edition, the book continues to provide all postgraduate students taking higher public health examinations with a proven, successful core revision text.
The book covers the five key areas of public health knowledge: research methods; disease prevention and health promotion; health information; sociology, policy, and health economics; and organisation and management of health care. It is structured to follow the entire MFPH Part A exam syllabus, with appendices on revision strategies, exam technique and essay frameworks. Written in conjunction with an international team of editors, the book is aimed at public health practitioners who are training or re-validating in the UK and worldwide. Its concise format also serves as a quick reference text for the specialty.
I am confident that this will rapidly become required reading for all those taking the faculty's exams, as well as for those undertaking training in public health in many other countries.
