Overview

Key Features

The Public Health course at University of Arizona is unique as it focuses on developing future leaders in public health practice, who will advance the public’s health through the integration and application of a broad range of knowledge and analytical skills in leadership, practice, policy analysis, research, program management and professional communication.

The DrPH program prepares these individuals to translate scientific knowledge into community-based programs that improve the health status of communities, identify solutions to community health problems, and provide leadership in public health policy and management within both academic and nonacademic settings, as well as in public-agency or private-sector settings that emphasize improving the health of the public. It follows that public health workers from the state and region with the requisite experience and subsequent training will be best suited and prepared for creating the administrative infrastructure necessary for promotion of a healthy public and amelioration of current public health issues in the region.

There are two key examinations associated with the DrPH program that indicate a student’s progress toward obtaining the degree. The DrPH program requires students to complete a written and oral comprehensive doctoral examinations and a dissertation defense.

The DrPH competencies guide the development of the program curriculum and learning activities for the core and required courses in the DrPH curriculum.  This posted list of competencies also provides applicants, students, employers and other stakeholders information about the knowledge foundation and skills of graduates from the MEZCOPH DrPH program.

The DrPH course requirements are determined by the DrPH Section that offers the DrPH area of study.  Students should be aware that some of the coursework for the DrPH have pre-requisites; therefore, students work with their Faculty Advisor to plan their coursework accordingly.  In addition, students without an MPH degree will be required to complete the five core MPH courses.
