The International Summer School Methods and Challenges in Public Health Sciences is organised by ISSPAM and its members from the various Research Units of the Institute.
The aim of this interdisciplinary approach is to train students to understand, analyse and explain public health problems in the North and the South. It includes theoretical, practical and participatory teaching in different fields using qualitative and quantitative methods in public health sciences.

The modules and the symposium are in hybrid format, i.e. face-to-face in Marseille and live online.

Full details in the brochure.


As part of its summer school, ISSPAM is organising a symposium entitled "Quelles intelligences pour la santé publique? "on Thursday 13 June 2024 in Marseille in French only.
The state of health of populations, the study of their determinants and their health needs are mobilising and raising questions in the face of the many current challenges and public health issues.
The aim of the symposium, entitled "What intelligences for public health?", is to provide a collective perspective on a range of public health issues, based on a 360-degree view of complementary angles of analysis.
This symposium brings together 4 speakers around 4 themes, proposed by each of the 4 speakers. In 18 minutes, each speaker presents a theme and submits it to the other 3 speakers for their thoughts, analysis and vision, each of whom has 360 seconds to do so. This round table is completed by debates between the speakers and with the participants to generate collective intelligence and a 360-degree vision.
