The Master of Public Health (MPH) Program is a professional degree program that is administratively based in the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health within the School of Medicine at the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB). Accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH), our 42 credit hour program has three concentrations: Epidemiology, Community & Population Health and Global Health. 

Building upon the rich history and tradition of excellence of the School of Medicine as well as the dynamic academic community, the MPH Program is vibrant and growing. The MPH Program enjoys a strong research environment with outstanding university resources. Being part of a unique campus environment has made it possible for broad-based interdisciplinary scholarship, research, practice, leadership and policy. In addition to our MPH degree, our collaboration with other UMB professional schools has made it possible for us to offer six dual-degree programs: DDS/MPH, JD/MPH, MD/MPH, MS (Nursing)/MPH, PharmD/MPH and MSW/MPH.

Our MPH Program will provide opportunities for you to receive a stellar education, the opportunity to develop multi-disciplinary partnerships and inspire you to positively impact the health and well-being of populations worldwide.

Congratulations to our MPH Student Leaders, March 28, 2015

On Saturday, March 28th, second year MPH students Tolulope Sodimu, Modinat Lawal, Jazmyn Thompson, Sarah Kilby, and Ngozi Obineme presented a workshop at Towson University's Spring Leadership Conference. The workshop was titled, "Transformation from Within: Tips to Becoming a Healthy Leader," and focused on educating participants on healthy habits that can help make one a successful leader. These habits included: dealing with stress and failure, balancing your time both in and outside of work, self-care, creating a vision, and setting small, incremental goals for yourself in order to make that vision seem more attainable. This workshop included an activity that involved creating personal visions and goals and sharing them within a small group in order to gain valuable feedback. These wellness skills/tips are essential in order to become an effective and positive leader. Leaders that use these skills will also influence their team members to do the same, ultimately creating an environment of healthy, successful and effective leadership.
