From 22 to 27 August 2022, USI will be holding the SSPH+ Lugano Summer School in Public Health Policy, Economics, and Management. In its 31st edition in Ticino, the 'summer school' boasts a tradition of welcoming professionals and researchers from all over Switzerland, Europe, Africa, Asia and the Americas to our Canton. An online pre-course will take place on 16 and 18 August. 

The SSPH+LSSS programme comprises 13 three-day courses, two one-day courses and seven plenary lectures. These take place daily from 9 to 10 am and from 5 to 6 pm and are free and open to the public. 

Each course aims to strengthen the health systems by preparing practitioners, researchers and graduate students to address health challenges worldwide by learning from each other and reducing the gap between research, policy and practice.  

The courses will be offered online and in attendance in Lugano. Participation fees are designed to make the courses accessible to a global audience. A limited number of scholarships are also available.
