SSPH+ Lugano Summer School in Public Health Policy, Economics and Management

The SSPH+ Lugano Summer School is jointly organized by SSPH+, the Institute of Economics (IdEP) at the Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI) and the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH).

The Lugano Summer School program is meant to address the needs of public health professionals, researchers and graduate students alike who are looking to improve their competences in several public health related fields and to create a platform of exchange between the faculty and all participants. This should provide the opportunity to reduce and prevent the gap between public health theory and practice by placing disease and health systems thinking under one common framework of coherent concepts and practical implications.

The courses of the SSPH+ Lugano Summer School are acknowledged by the SGPG (Schweizerische Gesellschaft der Fachärztinnen und -ärzte für Prävention und Gesundheitswesen / Società svizzera dei medici specialisti in prevenzione e salute pubblica) as an advanced training. The courses are awarded 19 FMH credits (3 day courses) / 38 FMH credits (6 day courses).
