Educational programs in the Brown University School of Public Health build upon the University‚Äôs student-directed open curriculum as well as the resources of the School’s 12 public health research centers and institutes. Reflecting the evolving needs of the health care workforce, all degree programs include opportunities to “learn public health by doing public health.”

The low student-to-faculty ratio fosters a supportive learning environment distinguished by interdisciplinary collaboration. The faculty are active researchers who bring experiences from the field into the classroom. Students have opportunities to conduct research with these faculty as well as those across the University, in the Brown Affiliated Hospitals, the Rhode Island Department of Health, and in our network of global public health organizations.

With relentless passion for rigorous research, public health at Brown University goes beyond preventing disease to reshaping healthcare, transforming policy, and safeguarding vulnerable populations. For more information contact:
