Certificate in Public Health Management

Brochure (pdf format)

Certificate in Public Health Management Overview

Healthcare has been experiencing a tremendous evolution in recent years, particularly as public health has developed a close relationship with the clinical care of individuals. The concepts surrounding population and community health have become an integral part of health care in the United States during the past decade as once again a greater understanding of public health has become a requisite part of caring for the US population. Understanding how to manage the health of populations and communities has not traditionally been a part of the training of clinicians including physicians, dentists, nurses, pharmacists, and other clinical practitioners. In order to develop the role of clinician managers of the public’s and community’s health, additional education is required. The Graduate Certificate in Public Health Management provides a mechanism for public health workers and students admitted to the Graduate School to enhance their competencies and skills in management without undertaking a graduate degree in management or public health.
