Public Health MPH (Master’s)
If you’re a person dedicated to the idea of making the world a healthier place, Creighton’s Master of Public Health (MPH) program is your answer. There are many ways to impact Public Health beyond a traditional healthcare provider role. Public Health professionals focus on preventing and mitigating disease outbreaks and confronting systemic health challenges affecting everyone.
In Creighton’s School of Medicine, you’ll pursue an education grounded in the Jesuit values that drive our mission, including caring for the whole person and fighting for the interests of poor and marginalized populations.
Public Health has a long history of policies to improve the health of people worldwide, including vaccination programs, family planning, and preventive medicine. If you’re driven to serve others by advocating for health education, solving population health issues, eliminating socioeconomic barriers to a healthy family, and promoting disease control and prevention, this program is for you. You can learn more in this article, What to Expect from a Public Health Degree.
"Students will hear me say that the field of public health is like a mosaic of disciplines. A public health professional will learn about health disparities, addiction, homelessness, food insecurity, infectious disease, community dynamics, programming, nursing and integrative health while learning the cultural nuances of populations different from their own. Working in the field of PH is never boring!"
