The Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) degree program at the Johns Hopkins University is designed for the student who already has an MPH or equivalent degree and who intends to pursue a leadership position as a public health professional.


Through the integration and application of a broad range of knowledge and analytical skills in leadership, policy, program management and professional communication–coupled with preparation in a specific public health field–graduates of the DrPH program are prepared for either domestic or international careers in public agencies or private sector settings that emphasize improving population health.
