The Master of Public Health is a professional degree that provides a population-based perspective and is designed to prepare students to investigate and manage public health problems.
The Council on Education fully accredits the Upstate Public Health program in Public Health (CEPH).
This is an exciting time to pursue a professional degree in Public Health, and the MPH Program at Upstate Medical University is an ideal venue to provide that opportunity. Our unique Upstate Public Health program relies on Upstate Medical University's academic strengths in clinical medicine, social and behavioural sciences, health policy, and program administration.
Upstate Public Health students strive to understand public health problems and develop innovative methods to improve their communities and larger populations.
We are committed to ensuring that the academic experience here is intellectually challenging and equips our students with the necessary leadership skills in public health. In addition to gaining a solid foundation in public health principles, research methodology, and real-world application, our students can choose a topic they are passionate about and devote considerable time to it in fieldwork and research.
After they earn their Public Health degree, our students can apply their knowledge and skills to solve wide-ranging public health problems by translating sound research into beneficial programs and policies.
Upstate Public Health students represent a broad range of individuals from within and outside the health care professions. Among them are recent college graduates from various majors, nurses, lawyers, administrators, physician assistants, medical students, and physicians. Class sessions and group projects are greatly enriched by the unique perspectives that each student brings.
