Public Health

Welcome to the Yorkshire and Humber School of Public Health We are a dynamic, friendly, and supportive speciality school delivering high quality, comprehensive training for individuals wishing to become Consultants in Public Health.

The whole school is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and we have reviewed our approach to this recently. We want to help more people with varied experiences, backgrounds and ideas thrive as future leaders and do our part to tackle the systemic injustices that make it harder for brilliant people to contribute as leaders.

Our school is based in Leeds, but we provide training opportunities across the whole of the North, East, South and West Yorkshire, incorporating large cities, smaller towns, and rural settings, and including populations of significant affluence and marked deprivation. Our registrars gain public health experience within many settings, including local authorities, national and local NHS organisations, academic institutions, and Public Health England. We also support more diverse training opportunities, reflecting the expanding role of public health across different organisations. We currently have 38 registrars on our training programme.
