Education and Training
Graduate and Postgraduate Education
From general introductory courses and specialised short courses, to bachelor, master, PhD and professional postgraduate programmes, hundreds of students from many different parts of the world benefit each year from the institute’s wide ranging and rich educational and training offerings.
Various Swiss TPH departments take part in education and training in various forms and at multiple levels, often in collaboration with the University Basel, the Swiss School of Public Health (SSPH+), the tropEd-network and other institutions around the globe.
Mutual Learning for Change
Education and training have been cornerstones of the institute’s activities from the beginning, starting with the “Allgemeine Tropenkurs” (General Tropical Course) — a course that continues to prepare participants annually for stays in low-income countries in the global south.
