Our Program

The Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine’s Program in Public Health provides an educational environment that fosters acquisition of knowledge about the factors that contribute to the health and diseases of populations, and to apply that education to professions engaged in clinical care and public health. Our programs capitalize on and emphasize the unique resources available through the medical school, its faculty, and the Chicago area.

Why a Master of Public Health?

  • "Working in a busy urban ED, I encounter clinical issues pertinent to public health on a daily basis. It gives a broader perspective on the challenges facing my patients. My MPH has also been useful in my extracurricular research projects, and I plan to pursue more public health-related emergency medicine research throughout my career."
  • "NU's MPH allows you to see the big picture into which individual patient interactions fit. I feel extremely well-prepared to conduct clinical research and policy or advocacy work that will improve the health of my patients."
  • "The MPH program at Northwestern gave me a broader lens through which to approach my clinical practice and research career...I strengthened my analytic skills and was exposed to a different view of health."
  • "A fantastic experience!"
  • "Getting my MPH was one of the best career decisions I ever made!"
