The MPH Program at the University of Maryland School of Medicine is a three concentration program. The three concentrations in Epidemiology, Community & Population Health, and Global Health emphasize the development of public health skills in core concentration requirement courses that are skills based. Students can select electives to tailor their program of study to their academic interests and career goals.
The program provides a set of skills and principles essential for students who intend to apply their training in a professional setting, provide leadership in public health specialties, and improve and protect the health and well being of populations. Coursework is designed to prepare public health professionals to actively and effectively contribute to population-based, culturally appropriate, and innovative approaches to current and emerging public health problems. The MPH degree requires 42 credit hours, including 17 credits from core courses and a six- hour supervised project, the Capstone Experience.
The MPH Program is closely aligned with existing degree programs in the UMB professional schools and offers the following dual degrees: JD/MPH, MD/MPH, MS Nursing/MPH, MSW/MPH, PharmD/MPH, DDS/MPH.
