PH 360 is at the heart of GHEP’s central mission of eliminating health and education disparities in local communities in United States and across the world by addressing the social determinants of health which are the underlying causes of disparities.

Target Audience

PH 360 curriculum has been carefully crafted for:

  • MPH or graduate students seeking to complete a mentored, project-based, hands-on internship in fulfillment of college or university requirements;
  • Graduates of non-public health graduate programs who are seeking to gain a time-limited but intensive hands-on experience to prepare them for careers in public health;
  • Undergraduates in health or non-health-related majors seeking to complete a bridge program to determine potential entry into public health graduate programs;
  • Practicing public health practitioners seeking to refresh their knowledge and to update on current and emerging issues in the field of public health.

Core Values

PH 360 trainees must subscribe to the following core values:

  1. Value diversity: diversity of thoughts, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender and national origin;
  2. Acknowledge that public health is global health: the health of communities and nations are intertwined; and
  3. Be respectful and collegial: we are passionate, empathetic, fun and collegial.
