Hosted by the Gillings School’s Public Health Leadership Program, the Leadership in Practice concentration is designed to support professionals at all areas of public health practice, at every level of their leadership journey whether they are entry-level public health practitioners, public health executives, or someone in between. As a graduate of this concentration, you will be well-equipped to move into a variety of roles commensurate with your level of work experience.
The next generation of public health leaders needs to build strong relationships, not only with members of their own team but also with leaders from other sectors, political parties and disciplines. Skills in public health leadership are needed at every level in clinical, community-based and workplace settings, and hiring new talent with fresh perspectives is a priority for nongovernmental and governmental clinical and public health organizations.
Upon graduation, you will be prepared to:
- Step into leadership roles in which you may work with multidisciplinary leadership teams, governing boards and system partners.
- Work as a program or organizational manager responsible for supervising teams that focus on complex research or community and interorganizational collaborations.
- Serve as a team leader or in a project management role in local, state, national and international public health organizations and industries.
99% of Gillings graduates have a job or continue their education within one year of graduating.
