Masters in Global eHealth

By Claudia Pagliari | 27 Aug, 2015

We are accepting late applications to the University of Edinburgh's Masters Programme in Global eHealth. This part time, online programme is aimed at working health practitioners, innovators, policymakers, implementation staff and analysts with an interest in understanding health informatics and eHealth in its interdisciplinary and international context. The role of eHealth in LMIC is a key theme, although the programme is international. Our expert tutors and students are already active on GHDOnline and we hope that more of you will join us for the MSc, diploma or certificate tracks (1, 2 and 3 years, part time) or sign up to our 10-week modular courses.

Claudia, am interested in your offering. But can only go for it if it's
scholarship based. Is there such offering?

Syed Shah Replied at 12:17 PM, 27 Aug 2015

Hi Claudia, I am interested to apply. What is the procedure for applying?

nixon belizaire Replied at 1:29 PM, 27 Aug 2015

I think that is so necessary to make clear my asking and the reason that I am obliged to choose this field of expertise : there is more than 4 years I searched for a scholarship either in Global health or MPH ( biostatistic and epidemiology ) all the people and institutions that i asked for ,said always to me that"s so expensive the MPH program either at USA or Europe.now my country needs the physicians in legal medicine to support our law or justice system when we have crime or murder there is only 2 physicians in legal medicine for more than 10 million people in a surface of 27 500 km2 .in the life when you can not find what you desire that is so important to try to be useful yourself and your community.unfortunately I am born in a poor country that do not have enough opportunity seeing to explore more their resources but I would like to be useful of my society. I would like to implore you try how you can refer me to someone do it for all the people that I would be back to serve after the study and I think that you would be done the best gift to a poor country of Haiti .

Dear Claudia,

I already applied for the MSc in Global eHealth and will be informed about further progress 4-6 weeks from the day my application accepted, but my English Language Test Score (TOEFL) that I used to apply may not meet minimum requirement yet because I still haven't got enough funding for the next test fee (IELTS). Will there any dispensation to complete the other required document later?

Apologize for asking specific question through this online discussion forum.

Thank you

Please tell me what is a "sandwich methodology"

Alvin Marcelo, MD Replied at 3:33 PM, 28 Aug 2015

Hi Dian,

It is when a student already is taking a masters program in his/her home
country but can then take courses in another university and then return to
his/her country to finish the program. There are many variations but
essentially it is a partnership between two universities...

At www.yazmi.com we are interested in turning this sort of subject area into a free massive open online collaboration at least as far as needs ttobe shared amongst community health networkers inspired by preferential option poor

please feel free to contact me if ythis matches your interests of you have questions

actually we have quite a long list of partners (egmobile women empowerment parrtners at the united nations) who's knowledge development for and with the poor leads to different priorities bot in term of good practice and affordable methods - so we understand that our interest is a segmented one

However coming from scotland originally i would particularly like to connect with educational systems that see the advnatage of partbering with a worldwide platform - there is always plenty of tutoring and mentoring work which ultimately needs professional mediation and so eg scholarships or other pay forward ways of funding from the student side

Hi Claudia,

Are you still accepting late applications? I tried to contact the school itself but there is no response. Please let me know so I can plan otherwise.
