Equity in Brain Health (P.Grad.Cert)

1 year part-time
Minimum EU 1/Maximum EU 20 Places


Dementia is rapidly increasing around the world. By 2050, the number of people with dementia will triple, overwhelming families, communities, public healthcare systems and economies. Most of this growth will occur in low- and middle-income countries, highlighting the inequity of this disease. This issue is broadly accepted, with the World Health Organization advocating for new public health approaches to training. There is an urgent need for programs that think globally and particularly train leaders in low- and middle-income countries, where the largest changes in dementia burden are expected to occur. This postgraduate course covers core clinical, social and socio-economic aspects of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, along with research and leadership skills training

Career Opportunities
