The UC Davis M.P.H. Program’s goal is to develop the public health leaders of the future by providing a high-quality Master’s degree curriculum in partnership with the public health community. We accomplish this through the collaborative efforts of the UC Davis and health networks, including the Schools of Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, Management, Law, Education, and Nursing and the California Department of Public Health, local county health departments, and non-profit agencies. These partnerships comprise teaching, student mentorship and field placements, research, service, direction, and support for the UC Davis M.P.H. Program.
The UC Davis M.P.H. Program is an accelerated, 56-unit program that focuses on the essentials of public health. It offers students two concentration areas – General Public Health & Epidemiology – and includes a practicum experience, or internship, in a public health setting.
