The Ponce Health Sciences University PHP is on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. Through an innovative, dynamic, and vanguard curriculum, we emphasize critical thinking and leadership. Our mission is to provide the skills and competencies to offer high-quality public health services and promote and protect the health of diverse populations in the globalized world.
We offer a DrPh in epidemiology and an MPH with three concentrations: general, epidemiology, and environmental health. Courses are divided into trimesters and offered in the evenings as they are aimed at students who work. We have a low student-faculty ratio, experienced faculty, and new teaching techniques as the flipped classroom.
Our faculty and students work on research topics such as cancer, autism, air, water, infectious, and vector-borne diseases.
The PHP maintains a tight relationship with communities and the Public Health Association is interdisciplinary.
Our alumni work in public and federal agencies, community-based organizations, and universities.
