Master of Public Health in Health Metrics and Evaluation

Professional Certificate: Distance Learning Program in Health Metrics and Evaluation
(Anticipated start date: Autumn Quarter 2013)
This Professional Certificate program is being designed specifically for the Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) and Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Program (FELTP) of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This program is intended to supplement FETP and FELTP training with instruction on broader population health measurement techniques that can improve students’ abilities to assess health trends at national and subnational levels. In future years, we hope to expand the program to reach broader audiences, particularly global health professionals working in low-resource settings.

The Department of Global Health, in collaboration with the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation and Health Alliance International, have developed a PhD program in Global Health that is the first of its kind, building on the expertise of our faculty in the areas of metrics and implementation science. The PhD program provides students with the latest and most innovative tools to advance global health solutions that are critical for decision-making and priority setting.
