The MPH-PEP curriculum focuses on developing practical skills in population health management and leadership. Core public health courses establish the foundational principles of public health; required courses focus on practical skills and methods to plan, implement, manage and evaluate population health strategies; and specialization courses allows students to dig deeper into specific concepts in leadership, health care decision making, cost-effectiveness, project management, community engagement and evidence-based public health.

The program’s goals are to develop leaders in public health, health care and community health who can work across sectors to create real change in the populations they work with.
