• Our mission is to leverage the resources and environment of a premier research university to prepare the next generation of leaders in public health. The program recruits a culturally inclusive body of students with diverse training and experience and seeks to train innovative thinkers who will assess the health needs of populations and communities, who will plan, implement, evaluate, and disseminate programs to address those needs, and who will inform public debate and policymaking, all toward the crucial goal of optimizing conditions for healthy living locally, nationally, and globally.
  • We had a great time at our Fall Orientation and we are excited to Welcome our students back for the Fall semester!
  • MPH student Abbey Roepke recently traveled to India where she learned about many exemplary models of care delivery throughout the southern state of Tamil Nadu.
  • “I’m very grateful to have had the opportunity to work with PCA, an invaluable agency that tirelessly works towards improving the lives of older Philadelphians” -Barbara Herzstock, PCA Intern

The Penn MPH

The Penn MPHThe University of Pennsylvania Master of Public Health Program (MPH Program) is a university-wide, interdisciplinary collaboration among eight schools. In addition to the faculty from the School of Medicine where the program is housed, faculty from Nursing, Arts and Sciences, Veterinary Medicine, Wharton School of Business, Dental Medicine, and Social Policy and Practice, are integral partners in this initiative. The overall MPH Program objective is to provide a focal point for enhancing collaborations in public health research and practice. We consider this program to be a unique model for training the next generation of public health leaders.

With a 4:1 student to faculty ratio, students have access to public health experts who will mentor them from coursework through their Capstone projects. The program is flexible, allowing for both full-time and part-time study.
