University of Pittsburgh


Bridging to a Healthier World (1)

Like our city of 445 bridges, the University of Pittsburgh School of Public has a unique span – across seven diverse academic departments. Through partnerships with stakeholders locally and globally, we create, implement, and disseminate innovative public health research to counter persistent population health problems and inequities through community-tailored interventions. Pitt Public Health stands out in traditional areas of research including women’s health, infectious diseases, human genetics, aging and longevity, health administration, environmental health, and biostatistics and data science. Emerging areas of strength include climate and health, precision public health and undergraduate education, with the launch of a Bachelor of Science in Public Health degree program. Having excelled in graduate education since 1948, Pitt Public Health is now connecting with an even younger generation of students with hands-on and high-tech instruction – enabling them to become tomorrow’s public health leaders.
