The University of Miami’s graduate programs in epidemiology and public health provide an intensive research-oriented environment for innovative public health training. Most faculty members serve as principal investigators on NIH awards, performing research to discover unique and shared pathways that lead to health promotion and disease prevention and translating their findings into interventions and educational experiences for individuals, communities and populations.
Several masters (MPH, MSPH, MS), doctoral, and joint-degree programs offer small classes with a high level of student/faculty interaction. The innovative four-year MD/MPH program allows students to complete both degrees within a fully coordinated program of coursework and clinical activity. Other joint programs (JD/MPH, MPA/MPH, MD/PhD) take advantage of the many opportunities for interdisciplinary education throughout the UM campus.
An active Public Health Student Association provides opportunities for students to get involved with other students, faculty, and South Florida’s community organizations working together to make a difference and to advance the profession of public health.
