Epidemiology Clinical MPH Graduates

MPH for Clinical Scholars

Contemporary approaches to patient care, healthcare administration, and policy have sparked an increased demand among health professionals for a broader understanding of public health from an epidemiologic prospective. Previous training makes it possible for Epidemiology to accommodate the needs of healthcare providers with an accelerated MPH program that can be completed in one year.

Students with a prior U.S. clinical doctorate degree or currently enrolled in a U.S. medical school are required to complete a minimum of 56 units of graduate and upper division course work for the M.P.H. degree. These students are required to complete PH200A/B, Biostatistics 100B; Epidemiology 200A/B, 400, 410, 413.  Remaining course work will be selected from the Department’s eligible courses. At least eight units must be taken from the 400 level series. All courses towards attaining the degree must be taken for a letter grade.

All Epidemiology-M.P.H. students must submit a report demonstrating competence in epidemiologic methodology. The report may not be submitted prior to the completion of Epidemiology 400.
