The West Midlands region offers excellent training opportunities, including those with CPD hours allocated, for all members and provides regular information on updates and opportunities in the area.
The West Midlands Regional Board are committed to running at least two free/low cost events a year, which will include speakers who work within the Environmental Health and public health field. These two events are encapsulated in the Summer and Winter Seminars, which are usually hosted at the University of Birmingham and Wolverhampton. These are one day seminars with refreshments and lunch provided, and also allows members to accrue CPD. Where permission has been granted, presentations are uploaded on West Midlands Resources webpage. We are also committed to showcasing our academic work that students and academics are involved in within our Seminars.
Within the West Midlands region, we have 3 universities that deliver the Environmental Health degree:
- Coventry University: BSc in Environmental Health
- University of Wolverhampton: BSc in Environmental Health
- University of Birmingham: MSc in Environmental Health
