It is structured to follow the entire MFPH Part A exam syllabus, with appendices on revision strategies, exam technique and essay frameworks.

Written in conjunction with an international team of editors, Mastering Public Health is aimed at public health practitioners who are training or re-validating in the UK and worldwide. Its concise format also serves as a quick reference text for the specialty.
