Doctoral programme in Public Health Science (PHSP)
The Doctoral programme in Public Health Science (PHSP) places particular emphasis on the study and influence of determinants of health and disease in the population.
Public Health Science is a multidisciplinary field that aims to study and influence the determinants of health, disease and longevity in the population. The approach includes the study of the social, economic and physical environment as well as individual characteristics and behaviours.

Other educational activities
The programme hosts seminars, workshops and other educational activities.
The seminar series for spring 2019 is: Measuring Sex – Discussing Gender: Research Implications for Health and organised together with the BIGH programme.
The purpose of our seminars is to provide an intellectually challenging, yet generous and informal environment where doctoral students can work on core topics and develop their knowledge together with junior and senior colleagues.
Find all upcoming seminars and workshops at the bottom of this page as well as in the calender for doctoral programmes at KI.
Network in Public Health Science for PhD students
The network organise events for and with PhD students, share information on and discuss the latest public health research. Our aim is to enhance collaboration between students in different institutions, departments, and universities. The network is open for all doctoral students working within research areas related to public health.
Open and social events hosted by the network
The network gives PhD students the possibility to network through different open events and social events. Find upcoming open events organised by the network in the calender for doctoral education.
