  • The opportunity to learn from College of Public Health faculty who have distinguished themselves during their public health careers, including a Surgeon General nominee and faculty who held senior leadership positions at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
  • The program is large enough to offer students many exciting learning/research/service opportunities, but small enough that you can really “get to know” faculty and students.
  • The opportunity to study with faculty who generate millions in collaborative research each fiscal year.
  • The opportunity to study on a comprehensive health sciences campus, that also includes Colleges of Dentistry, Health Sciences, Medicine, Nursing, and Pharmacy.
