UW Master of Public Health Program in Health Services
Posted: 9/8/2016 (Local Events)
The University of Washington’s Master of Public Health (MPH) and Master of Science (MS) programs in Health Services are actively recruiting students for admission for the fall of 2017.
The MPH program in Health Services consistently ranks among the best in the nation. The goal of our program is to prepare leaders to improve health in diverse populations by solving problems in rapidly changing societies and health systems.
The MPH in Health Services is a 2-year graduate degree program that offers analytical and practical knowledge and skills to candidates who have some experience in health fields and who want to assume positions of greater responsibility in improving the public’s health and the effectiveness of health care and population health services. The curriculum is exceptional in the strength of its required and elective courses in research methods, health care systems, health economics, health promotion, and the social determinants of health. Students can pursue optional concentrations in Health Systems and Policy, Maternal and Child Health, and Social and Behavioral Sciences.
The program’s more than 70 core faculty members and more than 200 clinical, affiliate, and adjunct faculty members are skilled in interdisciplinary research and practice and are able to mentor students with a large diversity of educational backgrounds and training interests. It has more than 1,000 alumni, many of whom are leaders in academia, government agencies, and the private sector. Several alumni have pursued the PhD Program in Health Services or advanced study in a related field.
The MS degree program is often chosen by physicians and post-doctoral fellows and is sometimes undertaken as the first step toward a doctorate in Health Services.
The application deadline for the MPH and MS programs is January 1, 2017. Please do not hesitate to contact Lauren Brackenbury with any questions.
Time: Fall Quarter, 2017
