The role of today’s pharmacist is evolving into an active participant in managing chronic disease. The role of public health coincides with the work of a pharmacist by providing education on policy, patient education, and population management.
Public health pharmacists are involved in advanced pharmacy practice, health policy development, emergency and humanitarian response, global health, and many other areas.
The Public Health Pharmacy program gives you an opportunity to complement your pharmacy degree with a Master of Public Health. This dual degree path offers training in health education, health promotion, and disease prevention interventions.
Students have the opportunity to complete the MPH portion of the dual degree completely online.
A key benefit of the program is that PharmD/MPH students are allowed to transfer up to 14 from the PharmD program to the MPH, saving them time and money.
The PharmD/MPH dual degree program is designed for pharmacy students who are presently enrolled in or applying to any accredited pharmacy school at any college or university in the country. If you are a practicing pharmacist, please consider the Executive Program in Public Health Practice.
“Completing a dual degree (PharmD/MPH) has given me the skills, perspective, and experience to enter the workforce ready to make a positive impact on population health by reducing healthcare disparities and focusing on quality improvement.”
