This two-year program teaches residents the basic components of preventative medicine, including a core curriculum in epidemiology, biostatistics, health policy and management, environmental and occupational health, the cultural, social and behavioral determinants of disease and the clinical practice of preventive medicine.
This program is open to physicians who have graduated from an accredited medical school in the United States or Canada, or who are certified by the Educational Council for Foreign Medical Graduates.
Participants must have completed at least one year of approved clinical internship or residency experience and be licensed to practice medicine in the United States or Canada, and must be U.S. or Canadian citizens or permanent residents. The program provides the academic (MPH) year and the year of supervised field training (practicum year) in preventive medicine and public health required by the American Board of Preventive Medicine.
Applications for the practicum year only will also be considered.
