Mission Statement

Public health is a multi-disciplinary subject, which includes the natural, social, medical and cultural sciences.

On the basis of biomedical findings quantitative methods such as epidemiology or biostatistics as well as, the qualitative methods of social and cultural sciences-, are applied to evaluate health-related data and to assess current and historical influences of society. Furthermore, the environment will be analysed with regard to health and disease of the entire population and population-related measures for prevention, health promotion, improved medical care, behavioural changes and the monitoring of environmental conditions will be developed.

The aim of Public Health is to improve the physical and mental health of the population through health-related initiatives in research, development, education and public relations, and to advise national and international bodies. Research in Public Health creates the necessary scientific basis for achieving these goals.

Die Humanmedizin-Studierenden des 7. Semesters haben sich im Block Public Health als wissbegierig gezeigt: aus diesem Grund hat das Block-Team unter der Leitung von Priv.Doz.DDr. Igor Grabovac zusätzlich zu den zu den bereits im Vorjahr erfolgreichen synchronen und asynchronen Lehrangeboten den Studierenden die Video-Files der Vorlesungen bereitgestellt. Darüber hinaus wurde von einem engagierten Team ein vertiefendes Freifach angeboten, das den Studierenden die Möglichkeit gegeben hat in Präsenz und vor Ort einen Einblick in unterschiedliche Tätigkeitsfelder und Anwendungen von Public Health zu erhalten. Das wurde von den Studierenden mit Höchstbewertungen im Rahmen der Evaluierungs-Tools seitens der Stabstelle und seitens der ÖH honoriert.
