  • Learning through service.

    One of the unique aspects of SPH is the way our students serve the community as they earn their degrees. Students and faculty work closely with officials and community leaders, conducting research that leads to changes in health policies. We are engaged in our community and collaborate with local, national and international health organizations. Because of these relationships, our students have more opportunities for internships and graduate assistantships with leading health organizations.
