The environment in which we live and work can have a profound effect on our health – an effect that is explored by the emerging field of geohealth.

This free online course will introduce you to new developments in geohealth, looking at the latest thinking and methods for using spatial data and geographic information systems (GIS) in health settings.

Understand geohealth techniques and best practice

The course consists of ten different topics, ranging from data collection techniques to spatial simulation, and aims to bridge the gap between scientific research and health professionals.

By the end of the course, you will understand how spatial data and geo-information techniques can contribute to solving public health problems, and be aware of best practice when using GIS in the health field.

Learn with health and geo-informatics specialists
