Public Health Institute
The Summer Public Health Institute provides professionals with a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in a chosen field of study for a single day or three weeks.
Each year the Institute offers a variety of courses for everyone practicing in or studying public health or fields related to public health. Participants can build or expand their professional expertise, learn best practices, broaden career options, network with other professionals or explore a new area of interest. Course content emphasizes theory to practice with opportunities for field trips, case studies, hands-on labs and simulations.
Who Should Attend
Professionals from public health and other health and human service organizations; city, county, state and federal government agencies and private-sector businesses; and graduate students enrolled in public health, medicine, veterinary medicine, nursing, dentistry, and agriculture, food and environmental sciences, and related graduate academic programs such as public affairs, social work and law.
