The goal is to present the findings of this research, develop policy implications, and publish the research in a peer-reviewed journal.
Research data may come from any of the following: outbreak investigation, public health surveillance, or translation of existing published data into a cost-effectiveness or meta-analysis research project.
Students will also gain first-hand knowledge and experience in public health practice and research, as well as investigate Preventive Medicine as a residency and specialty career path.
- A fully-funded Master of Public Health (MPH) or Master of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (MTM&H) degree.
- Variety of experiences and career paths.These include: outbreak investigations, policy development, travel and tropical medicine,
research, operational medicine, chem/bio response, humanitarian assistance, and the impact of the military environment on soldiers and workers.
