The Master of Public Health (MPH) program at the University of Pittsburgh's Department of Health Policy and Management is the 16th best in the nation according to new U.S. News and World Report rankings.
For the first time the annual rankings of MPH programs were separated by specialty creating 5 categories. The results were gathered from surveys of deans, administrators and faculty members at accredited programs and schools.
"Our program continues to move in the right direction through the hard work of our students and faculty and the success of our alumni," says Dr. Cindy Bryce, associate dean for enrollment and director of the HPM MPH and JD/MPH programs. "These rankings show our program is a top destination for students passionate about public health."
The MPH in Health Policy and Management prepares students for careers as public policy analysts, advocates for public health and high-quality care and much more. The curriculum is structured around the CEPH competency model for MPH students including health policy and management, communication, leadership, professionalism, systems thinking and self-actualization competencies.
Alumni of the MPH program have held positions in the public and private sector, with federal, state and local governmental agencies and have earned post-graduate fellowships with health care systems across the country.
