The Academic Curriculum

Formal coursework in the Master of Public Health Program in the Graduate School at the Icahn School of Medicine constitutes the core didactic training in epidemiology, biostatistics, and research methodology. General internal medicine fellows pursue their degree within the Outcomes Research Track of the MPH program which emphasizes skills development for the study of clinical outcomes and health services. Fellows join trainees from other medical specialties and affiliated health sciences for courses in basic and advanced clinical epidemiology and biostatistics (including multivariate analysis), health services research, medical ethics, and others. Candidates may tailor the curriculum to their specific research or education interests by selecting among the various elective courses offered through the Graduate School. Coursework may be applied to a Master of Public Health degree granted by the Icahn School of Medicine. For more information regarding the degree program, visit the M.P.H. Program.
