PhD by research via Distance Learning is awarded after successfully completing a theoretical research specialization. This research is presented in the form of a doctoral thesis. The PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) is the only doctoral degree that can be achieved through distance learning. The main requirement for a PhD online through distance learning is to present and discuss a thesis of at least 100 pages for review and evaluation by an academic committee at Selinus University.
In the light of the recent health crisis that is likely to change the way public health is implemented, the thesis of this research programme should define public health functions, practices, programmes and measures. Discuss the organisation and infrastructure of a modern and efficient healthcare system within a welfare system, the historical context and future challenges. The final thesis should provide a comprehensive description of basic public health services, how public health services are delivered and how managed care affects public health.
