Institute of Population Health
The Institute of Population Health drives population health scholarship through scientific programmes and civic partnerships, infused with education, learning and research, for understanding how biology, behaviours, environments, policies and technologies interact to determine physical and mental health, wellbeing and life chances.
School of Medicine
The Liverpool Royal Institution School of Medicine and Surgery was founded in 1834, forty seven years before the establishment of the University of Liverpool in 1881.
Building on such a heritage, we can offer extensive expertise across the medical professions through postgraduate programmes in a number of disciplines, both on campus and online.
Our portfolio ranges from short professional update courses for current practitioners to full-time, taught MSc programmes, all with excellent support structures to ensure you get the most from your study time.
