Concentration in GH Studies
Concentration in Global Health Studies for Epidemiology & Biostatistics MPH Students Program Summary
Program Requirements: Epidemiology and Biostatistics MPH core and required courses are compulsory. A modest selection of varied social science electives with a global perspective –offered at PSU, OHSU, and OSU – that address social determinants and "non-medical" factors impacting health and well-being are part of this expanded curriculum. In addition, introductory training in some form of skills development ("blue collar trades" – non-credit pass/fail course of the student's choosing) is required. Global health professionals, who practice and consult overseas in low resource settings, will appreciate the value of learning these additional "hands-on" skills. The Global Health Center believes this unique aspect of graduate school training will serve students well in their future careers, whether they are involved in a planning, problem-solving, construction, or supervisory capacity.
Course program documents and application etc. are listed on the MPH site.
Please note: This program is only open to students who have matriculated into the Epidemiology & Biostatistics Track of the Oregon MPH. Space is limited. If you have any questions about the Concentration in Global Health Studies, please contact Dr. Jay Kravitz.
