🔷The Joy of Learning Public Health
Our aim is to improve public health knowledge and competency among future health care providers, through holding summer schools, conferences and workshops. We believe that learning public health can be more exciting than the public health courses held at most universities today.
Therefore, IPHS aims to make the learning of public health joyful, engaging and intriguing for its audience, as you see in the picture below!
🔷Simulated, Story-based, Gamified Public Health Education
IPHS2017 simulates individual and group activities of a public health specialist. The storyline follows a science-fiction plot in 2200, which takes place after the annihilation of earth in another galaxy.
IPHS2017 tries to create a competing environment between the teams (Planets) to reinforce the educational objectives.
