Public health degrees at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai require all students to complete core courses in the five basic areas of public health knowledge: epidemiology, biostatistics, socio-behavioral health, health policy and management, and environmental health.
To round out your studies, students may select a general public health course of study or choose from seven areas of specialization. All students who wish to pursue one of the specialty tracks will be required to take specific courses listed for that track. The specialty tracks are as follows:
- General Public Health Track
- Health Promotion & Disease Prevention
- Environmental Health Sciences
- Global Health
- Outcomes Research
- Health Care Management
Note: If you choose the epidemiology or biostatistics track and enroll in the spring term, it may take more than two years to complete the Master in Public Health (MPH) degree.
