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 career as a public health professional.

Through the integration and application of a broad range of knowledge and analytical skills in leadership, practice, policy analysis, program management and professional communication – coupled with preparation in a specific disciplinary public health field – graduates of the DrPH program end up on the front lines of public health practice.

Several departments at the Bloomberg School offer the DrPH degree program, so contact your department of interest for more information. School-wide competencies for the DrPH program can be found here.
