The DrPH in Epidemiology is a research degree program designed to provide clinicians and public health professionals with advanced knowledge and skills in epidemiologic research methods.
The Department is committed to teaching students who will be leaders in academic research and public health practice. Our faculty are leaders in chronic disease, infectious disease, lifecourse, psychiatric/neuro, and social epidemiology, clinical epidemiology, and epidemiologic methods. Students who complete the degree are prepared to lead population research in research or practice settings.
The degree is open to public health practitioners and clinicians with an MPH and three or more years of work experience. The degree requires students to acquire core competencies in epidemiology methods but allows them to tailor the remainder of their course work to best further their individual career goals as public health leaders or clinical epidemiologists.
Applicants to the DrPH program need to submit their application the Mailman School of Public Health by December 1.
