Department of Epidemiology and Public Health
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 at Baltimore, School of Medicine. EPH makes significant contributions to the teaching mission at the School of Medicine and brings in annual research dollars that, on average, represents approximately 9% of all NIH funding at the School of Medicine.
Our research strengths are reflected in the substantial amount of 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.
