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 are prepared for academic positions as well as for careers in public agencies or private sector settings that emphasize improving population health.  

The Bloomberg School is in the process of redesigning the School-wide portion of our DrPH program.  For the academic year 2016/17 only the Departments of Epidemiology, Environmental Health, and Health Policy and Management are accepting applicants.  Please contact your department of interest for more information.  

Frequently asked questions about the redesigned DrPH program, due to be launched in 2017, are available here.  

School-wide competencies for the DrPH program can be found here.
