Postgraduate Education and Training in Public Health. Report of a WHO Expert Committee. World Health Organization Technical Report Series No. 533.
World Health Organization, Geneva (Switzerland).
A World Health Organization expert committee on Postgraduate Education and Training in Public Health met in Geneva from 25 April to 1 May 1973. It was vital to take a fresh look at the situation because of the far reaching changes that have occurred since 1960. There have been extensive revisions of undergraudate medical education. Major alterations have also been made in postgraduate training programs, and considerable changes have occurred in the pattern of health needs and demands and in ways in which health services are provided and managed, priorities established, and scarce resources distributed. Chapters of this document cover manpower needs in relation to postgraduate public health training; training programs in public health; institutions offering postgraduate public health training programs; the future of postgraduate training in public health; the role of associations of schools of public health; and the role of the World Health Organization in future developments. Annexes include extracts from a report on the situation of schools of public health; an outline of educational planning as related to postgraduate public health programs; and the problem-discipline matrix.
