Course Summary

Course Description

The DrPH program is an innovative program designed to prepare individuals for research careers in community health education at universities, private research institutions, or public health agencies. For interested students there are opportunities to work jointly with community partners on research projects. Students and graduates of the program will take a strategic role in addressing the public health research-public health practice divide through (1) the translation of practice-based problems to relevant research questions, and (2) the translation of research into practice. More specifically, the proposed doctoral program has the following underlying attributes:
This approach to research and teaching/learning in this doctoral program should accelerate the translation of new knowledge into practice in other ways as well. For example, findings generated by research teams (students, faculty, community partners) will have immediate implications for improving the undergraduate and master's curricula that prepare practitioners. In addition, selected B.S. and MPH students will be encouraged to participate on research teams, with the intention of strengthening both their research skills and their appreciation of research driven by practice.
