Department of Epidemiology and Public Health (EPH)

The Department of Epidemiology and Public Health (EPH) has grown over the past few decades into one of the largest basic science departments in the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UM SOM) . The department houses 48 full-time primary faculty members, 13 part-time primary faculty members, 66 volunteer adjunct faculty members, and 64 secondary faculty members. EPH makes significant contributions to the teaching mission at the UM SOM, and brings in annual research dollars that, on average, represents approximately 9% of all NIH funding at the UM SOM.

Our research strengths are reflected in the greater than $34 million in direct research funding that we receive each year. Our specialty deals with the causes, distribution, prevention, and control of disease.

We have outstanding, multifaceted graduate programs, including the CEPH-accredited Master of Public Health (MPH), and MS degrees in epidemiology, clinical research,  and biostatistics. We offer PhD degrees in epidemiology, molecular epidemiology and gerontology. Learn more about our other degree programs.
