The rapid transformation of European societies linked to globalisation processes is a great challenge for social and health policies, and impacts the distribution and quality of population health and its determinants. Since inequalities are increasingly widening, action cannot be postponed, starting from education. The aim of GlobHe-M course is to start filling the educational gap which prevents scholars from developing knowledge and skills tailored to deal with the challenges posed by a globalised society, in particular concerning population health issues and inequalities. GlobHe-M course learning outcome for students is the capacity of thoroughly analysing the complexity of issues related to globalisation, health and migration, applying the approach of the social determinants of health.
GlobHe-M teaching staff is representative of a variety of different backgrounds, disciplines and provenance. Health, social science and political science areas are equally represented. This interesting composition aims to create a stimulating learning environment and to facilitate experience exchange among different European countries. Interactive teaching and participatory learning methodologies will be applied throughout the course. The course will be held in English.
The course will be held in Bologna, Italy. Accommodation and meals for students and staff will be arranged close to the course venue (in the city centre).
