PREPARING FOR THE PART A EXAMINATION OF THE FACULTY OF PUBLIC HEALTH (MFPH)

I run a revision course for the Part A exam, about a month before each sitting. This is a two-day course which focuses on exam technique. It is suitable for people who have completed a Masters course or equivalent basic learning.

 

Next courses in England:

November 16th /17th in Lancaster (Jessop and Isba double act) – FULLY BOOKED

December 11th /12th in Winchester (Jessop solo act) – FULLY BOOKED

 

I plan to run two courses in April / May 2018 for the June 2018 sitting. Dates confirmed mid December, booking will open 1st Feb. Both courses will be in Winchester.

Downloads and other stuff:

1.     Click here for the course handout including tips on technique.

2.   This is the full text version, which is fully referenced with hyperlinks for you to follow up matters of interest. To read before or after but this is NOT what you need on the course.If you do download this please send me some feedback on what needs updating / expanding etc.

3.   I run a weekly blog of interesting papers in journals.

Exam material

Paper IA and other papers: Iím sometimes asked how to work concrete examples into answers. Hereís how to do it.

Paper IB: The management section is difficult to revise with some odd topics. But if itís in the syllabus, the examiners can set a question. Here are some exam-length essays (not quite answers to questions).

Paper IIA: here are some examples of Ďstrength and weaknessí answers. Thatís only 40% of the marks, so here is an example of a briefing to a politician based on this research paper.

Paper IIB: Here is a mock Paper IIB with some extra data and calculation examples.

Miscellaneous: Some people find mind maps a good way to plan an answer when in a hurry. Here and here are a couple of examples kindly provided by Behrooz Behbod.
