Public Health.

Welcome to the Yorkshire and the Humber School of Public Health. 

We are a dynamic, friendly and supportive specialty school, delivering high quality, comprehensive training for individuals wishing to become Consultants in Public Health.

Our school is based in Leeds, but we provide training opportunities across the whole of 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. Examples include regular placements at West Yorkshire Police and international work in Swaziland. We currently have 37 registrars on our training programme.
