The Disaster Healthcare (Online Delivery) programme offered by the University of South Wales will prepare you to provide high quality care to vulnerable populations in conflict zones, and disaster emergencies through humanitarian assistance.
A key element of the Disaster Healthcare course is its strong international and trans-cultural focus. You will study the key areas of theory and practice that are relevant to healthcare in complex humanitarian disasters, from resilience and response to mitigation and recovery.
You will also develop your knowledge on how to reduce disaster risks and improve public health, and develop skills in public health, research and leadership.
The Disaster Healthcare course involves studying via distance learning, plus an annual two-week residential summer school in the UK or Finland at the beginning of the course.
Graduates of the MSc Disaster Healthcare course find work with national healthcare providers, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and inter-government organisations. Graduates have taken up key posts with the International Federation of Red Cross (IFRC) and Red Crescent Societies, the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Department of Health, the armed forces and with NGOs in Sudan, Iraq, Angola and Afghanistan.
