Our training offer covers the fields of public health and health economics and social sciences. It is multi-disciplinary , with a particular focus on biostatistics, epidemiology, medical informatics, public health, economics, sociology and anthropology.

The courses taught focus mainly on quantitative and qualitative methods for processing increasingly complex medical information and mastering the methodology needed to analyse major health problems in both industrialised and developing countries. The courses cover a range of training levels, both initial and continuing training, both face-to-face and distance learning (distance learning with synchronous delivery of courses via videoconferencing over the Internet)..

These courses are taught mainly, but not exclusively, at the Aix-Marseille University and the Faculty of Medical and Paramedical Sciences.
