Short introduction 

        Master of Science in Health Development is the science of applying the best available research evidence either to patient care or to education to help resolve current health problems and to ensure the successful implementation of future health care. The program aims to build the critical abilities of students to be leaders for health institutions with the provision of a broad knowledge base. Students will be provided with the opportunities to learn the principle of research methodology and through best evidence, self-directed learning, and problem based approaches.
        The program is a two-year master degree course comprising 44 credits. Two specialized areas are offered, one in Clinical Epidemiology, and the other in Health Professional Education. The students are required to take full time course during the first year, and will be allowed to collect data for thesis in their hometown in the second year. Students will be provided with the opportunity to work closely with the advisors who are assigned based on the students’ research interest areas and their work will be assessed not only by faculty staff but also by visiting examiners.
