Doctor of Public Health (DrPH)
The Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) degree program at the Bloomberg School is designed for the student who already has an MPH or equivalent degree and who intends to pursue a leadership position as a public health professional.
Through the integration and application of a broad range of knowledge and analytical skills in leadership, policy, program management and professional communication–coupled with preparation in a specific public health field–graduates of the DrPH program are prepared for either domestic or international careers in public agencies or private sector settings that emphasize improving population health.
The program application will open mid-late August 2017, with applications accepted until December 1, 2017. New students will start in the revised program in June 2018 with an onsite summer institute in Baltimore.
Current DrPH students (as of September 2016) will continue to be supported by the program staff and advisers within the department that houses their respective concentration area. Please consult the departmental websites for each area for additional details related to curriculum, requirements, and specific contact information. New students will only be matriculated into the concentrations described on this site, as other concentrations are suspended at this time.
Competencies for the revised DrPH that begins in 2018 are posted in the Curriculum section of this site.
Thank you for your interest in the next DrPH program cohort that begins in summer 2018. If you would like to learn more about the program curriculum, concentration options and format, please join Program Director Dr. Sara Bennett for one of the upcoming webinars.
