Testimonials

Working in a busy urban ED, I encounter clinical issues pertinent to public health on a daily basis. It gives a broader perspective on the challenges facing my patients. My MPH has also been useful in my extracurricular research projects, and I plan to pursue more public health-related emergency medicine research throughout my career.

— MD/MPH graduate

NU's MPH allows you to see the big picture into which individual patient interactions fit. I feel extremely well-prepared to conduct clinical research and policy or advocacy work that will improve the health of my patients.
