  • I really enjoyed the format of the course. Having a variety of lectures, small group discussions, and wrap up activities was very beneficial to gaining a good understanding of the topic. It was really great getting to hear multiple perspectives.- 2014 Participant





Andrew Wapner, DO, MPH Thank you for your interest in the 2016 Summer Program in Population Health. This year’s set of 12 courses was chosen to align with both emerging health priorities and cutting-edge population health science. To ensure we continue to expand our learning opportunities, we are offering a number of new courses to compliment our most popular offerings. Through the support of the Ohio State University Medical Center’s Government Resource Center, we are excited to feature a course in Social Epidemiology, offering a unique look at how society impacts the health and well-being of individuals. Also new for this year is a course in the Development of Data Collection Instruments in Public Health, informing practitioners of methods for extracting more focused and useful data when other instruments are not available.

The mix of courses offered is intended to appeal to a broad range of health professionals, from public health to health care and beyond. We encourage all people working to understand and improve the health of individuals, groups or whole communities to register and join us for the 2016 Summer Program.
