The curricula for our MPH and DrPH programs are built around a framework of essential competencies for public health. For each degree, students demonstrate mastery of overarching competencies important for all public health graduates, as well as competencies specific to their concentration.
The focus of the course will be on preventive and treatment interventions for DD's based in the home, community programs, and health care settings in the United States and internationally. Through field visits and presentations, the students will become familiar with how such interventions are conducted, and the role of different stakeholders (families, public health programs, NGO's, health care providers, school systems) in planning, funding, running and evaluating them. During the course, students will gain experience in doing basic developmental screenings, assessing the home caregiving environment, planning interventions and preparing and presenting messages about early child development for families.
The Culminating Experience in Health Policy and Management allows the student to demonstrate the ability to integrate knowledge and skills in a Final Project similar to some aspect of practice as a public health professional. The faculty uses the Culminating Experience to judge whether the student demonstrates proficiency in the competencies required for public health practice.
Prerequisites: All CORE and EPID Track Courses.
Introduction to the broad concepts of public health practice including the mission, core functions, structure, policy role, program activities, and collaborative endeavors of public health agencies. Theoretical and practical perspectives are studied to illustrate contemporary strategies for health promotion and disease prevention at local, state, and national levels.
Our mission is to leverage the resources and environment of a premier research university to prepare the next generation of leaders in public health. The program recruits a culturally inclusive body of students with diverse training and experience and seeks to train innovative thinkers who will assess the health needs of populations and communities, who will plan, implement, evaluate, and disseminate programs to address those needs, and who will inform public debate and policymaking, all toward the crucial goal of optimizing conditions for healthy living locally, nationally, and globally.
