SOPH Winter School 2018- Closing date for applications extended!

ws2018Closing date: Extended to 20th April 2018

The University of the Western Cape School of Public Health is proud to present the 40th Short Course School in a series of Winter and Summer Schools held at UWC since 1992. These courses expose health and health-related workers to the latest thinking in Public Health and enable them to discuss and exchange ideas on improved planning and implementation of Primary Health Care in the changing environment of the developing world. To date, some 12,000 participants, mainly nurses and middle level managers have attended these courses, from all over South Africa and many other African countries. Most courses are one week long to allow busy health workers to receive continuing education with minimal disruption of their services. This year we are offering courses covering a wide range of management, programme development and policy and planning issues. The cost of courses is kept to an absolute minimum, to allow for the fullest participation.
