LSE Health & Social Care contributes to a range of teaching activities within the LSE. In particular, LSE Health is responsible for MSc in International Health Policy - a course that attracts a large number of students from a wide range of countries and backgrounds. Among other courses, students can take European and Comparative Health Policy, Foundations of Health Policy, Health Economics, Pharmaceutical Economics and Policy, and Hospital Economics and Management. A particular feature of this degree programme is the placement of some students within public and private sector bodies while undertaking their research dissertations, enriching students' educational experiences and maintaining close links with a number of organisations. It will soon be possible to specialise in Health Economics within this MSc.
Staff make contributions to the MSc in Health Policy, Planning and Finance which is taught jointly with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and the MSc in Health, Population and Society.
The Centre has a highly respected PhD programme. Currently there are 43 PhD students, including a number of Centre staff who are registered on PhD programmes, all of whom can attend any of the specialist taught postgraduate courses within the LSE.
Various short, specialists courses have been organised by LSEHSC staff including a WHO-supported summer school on health policy and a number of courses on health economics.
