The Master of Public Health concentration in Global Public Health - Health Systems, Management and Policy provides students with a public health perspective of globalization and global health issues, programs and best practices and trains students to use public health methods to address global health challenges. Students also gain depth in the area of health systems, management and policy, which provides training in organization, administration, management and evaluation of public and private sector health programs and health systems. Students are prepared for careers in leadership within a variety of sectors, including government, health care and non-governmental organizations.
As part of the MPH program, students are required to complete the core program curriculum, including a practicum and capstone project. Capstone projects should incorporate applied biostatistics and a global component.
