What we do:

We work to prepare public health practitioners for leadership positions by developing population-level knowledge and skills with an interdisciplinary emphasis. Building upon their varied professional experience, students collaboratively learn to assess community health needs, develop innovative policies and programs and ensure 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 over-diagnosis
  • 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
  • Public health systems and services research.
