The Master of Public Health (M.P.H.degree) and the Doctor of Public Health (Dr.P.H.) are multi-disciplinary professional degrees awarded for studies in areas related to public health. The MPH degree focuses on public health practice, as opposed to research or teaching. Additionally, when studying for an MPH degree students develop an integrated interdisciplinary, cross-cutting set of overall competency domains (Communication and Informatics, Diversity and Culture, Leadership, Professionalism, Program Planning, Public Health Biology, and Systems Thinking). A newly developing specialty within the MPH degree is Occupational Health Nursing. The traditional MPH degree is designed to expose candidates to 5 core discipline areas of public health: Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Environmental Health, Health Policy and Health Administration, Social and behavioural sciences.
MPH IS IMPORTANT?
The work of public health professionals is important because public health initiatives affect people every day in every part of the world. It addresses broad issues that can affect the health and well-being of individuals, families, communities, populations, and societies—both now, and for generations to come.
