University of Wisconsin – Madison



Founded in 2005, the Master of Public Health Program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is building a high quality and diverse public health workforce through excellence and inclusivity in interprofessional education, professional development, research, and community engagement.

The MPH program embraces interdisciplinary education. Learners may study public health exclusively or jointly with medicine, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, physician assistant studies, nursing, physical therapy, genetic counseling, law, or public affairs. Collaborations with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, Public Health Madison & Dane County, the City of Milwaukee, local public health departments, and other health care and not-for-profit agencies enable learners to experience the "Wisconsin Idea," the principle that the benefits of the university should improve people's lives beyond the classroom. The UW-Madison MPH Program envisions public health professionals optimizing population health and advancing social justice.
