Globalization has changed the way that governments and nongovernmental organizations tackle challenging health issues like HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment, the spread of communicable diseases, malnutrition, diabetes, and access basic medical care. And though some countries and communities experience affluence, many others around the world still face continued economic and social barriers to improved health.
Public Health is an exciting field that combines educational and scientific expertise from a variety of disciplines. At the Colorado School of Public Health we are helping individuals address these challenges from community and system levels through our education, research and service programs. Part of our effort is offering current and future healthcare professionals training through our classes, certificate and master of public health programs.
Although many of our school's public health programs are offered through our departments, we also offer several interdisciplinary programs and courses which benefit from the breadth of expertise located across our three campuses and five departments.
