OUR PROGRAMS

The Graduate Programs in Biomedical Sciences and Public Health are committed to excellence in the didactic and research training of masters and doctoral degree students. We train academic professionals pursuing careers that support the nation through service in the government or public sectors.

Our graduate students are integral partners in advancing biomedical research and public health practice here at the university and around the world. They not only participate in and enrich the intellectual and scientific work of the laboratories in which they train, they represent the next generation of scholars who will overcome the scientific challenges that will confront practitioners of military medicine and public health.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS

The Master of Public Health Professions Education program is the cornerstone of the Graduate Programs in HPE; it provides broad scholarly experience in the theory and practice of HPE by providing learners with the opportunity to participate in a series of formal courses, conduct original research, and obtain practical experiences to further enhance their leadership and educator skills.

About the Masters Degree

The PhD in HPE is the highest academic degree one can attain at the university; it is meant to serve those select students who desire to be at the forefront of the scholarship, leadership, and teaching of health professions students and residents. Although a master’s degree (e.g., MHPE, MPH, MEd, or MS degree) is not a prerequisite for the PhD in HPE, it is highly desirable.
