Public Health Leadership Program
The Public Health Leadership Program (PHLP) works to prepare public health practitioners for leadership positions by developing population-level knowledge and skills with an interdisciplinary emphasis. Building upon varied professional experience, students learn collaboratively to assess community health needs, develop innovative policies and programs and assure that new systems are maintained and improved.
Our strengths include:
- Health politics and policy, health outcomes and models of care delivery;
- Screening and harms of screening, including overdiagnosis;
- Prevention and reduction of cardiovascular risks and disease;
- Integration of primary care and public health;
- Quality improvement;
- Hazards and protection of health care workers;
- Ethical issues in occupational health; and
- Public health systems and services research.
“I expected to focus my efforts on a single project and produce a written deliverable at the end of the process, much like an academic course. Luckily this expectation was dispelled almost immediately.” — Manny Hignutt
