Meet With Us

There are many ways to connect with us and learn what life is like for a public health student at the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Visit our campus and go on a tour, make a one-on-one appointment with an admissions representative, speak with a current student ambassador, or attend a virtual information session. Feel free to sign up for our mailing list so you don't miss an upcoming admissions event.

Information Sessions

We hold monthly On-Campus Information Sessions, which include a presentation of the program offerings and tips on how to navigate the application process. You will have an opportunity to meet and speak with Faculty and/or Administrative Staff from the Graduate Program in Public Health.
**At this time our on-campus information sessions have been put on hold. Please join us for one of our future scheduled virtual information sessions**

Connect with us online by attending a Virtual Information Session, which includes the same information presented in the On-Campus Information Sessions. Virtual Information Sessions are typically held every two weeks excluding summer months. Sessions are scheduled to commence again in September. 

Register Here for a Virtual Information Session

One-on-one meetings with an admissions representative are being held virtually at this time. Campus tours and class visits are not available due to current events. We hope to resume campus tours and class visits at a later date. Please stay tuned for updates.
