Rapid changes in healthcare demands and technology pose a challenge for Public Health professionals to remain engaged and up-to-date in their field. The LEPHIE partnership seeks to bridge the gap between current academic programs and the continuing education needs of the future.

The goal of LEPHIE is to create a world class, blended-learning course on Leadership in European Public Health. By blending an EU-centric competencies framework, ICT-based education, and cross-cultural experience, this continuing education program will prepare its participants to be leaders and innovators. Reach more about LEPHIE here.

Currently LEPHIE has begun a pilot course at Sheffield Hallam University utilising Elluminate and Blackboard to bring students and instructors together from across Europe. 

You can learn more about the pilot here (PDF download).
