Training and education are at the heart of all of WHO Collaborating centre's activities.

These courses are run by Imperial College School of Public Health with relation, when applicable, to activities the department has with the WHO Collaborating Centre for Public Health and Education Training.

We strongly believe that courses must be tailored to the needs of participants, and designed to be as useful as possible in the real world.
With this in mind, we base our teaching on 3 principles:

Specialist knowledge based on many years of practical experience.
Our faculty are all experts in their field. We have built our programme based on years of experience in medicine, health services management, public health and education. We are able to draw upon the vast array of world experts across the university and in the National Health Service.

Case studies
Expert ability depends on context‐based knowledge. Our courses are structured around specially‐developed case studies to enable participants to move effectively from theory to practice.

Interactive teaching methods
Our interactive programme of study is based on contemporary theories and extensive practical experience.
