Message from the Director
Welcome to the Public Health Leadership Program!
The Public Health Leadership Program is an interdisciplinary program offering a masters degree and five academic certificates (public health leadership, core concepts in public health, global health, field epidemiology and occupational health nursing). Our vision is: to create public health leaders with the vision and ability to anticipate and solve future health challenges wherever they occur throughout the world.
The Public Health Leadership Program offers a customized curriculum to meet the demands of busy practitioners in public health and medical care. We offer courses delivered through a combination of traditional classroom and online formats, bolstered by practical, hands-on experience. In doing so, we create leaders who share a command of the latest technology and the most current public health approaches, who are adept at learning from their experiences, and who utilize these skills to create new opportunities for improvement.
The Public Health Leadership Program offers three concentrations:
- Leadership Concentration – offering an MPH degree and certificates that develop highly qualified public health leaders from a wide range of health and health-related professions
- Health Care & Prevention – offering a flexible MPH in the population sciences tailored to the needs of medical students and physicians
- Occupational Health Nursing – offering an MPH degree and a certificate to prepare nurses to protect and promote the health of the workforce
On this website, you will find more detailed information about our program. Contact information is available for staff and faculty who can answer any questions you may have. Thank you for interest in our program!
