Overview

Public Health 360 is a hands-on training program that prepares the next generation of eminently and superiorly-qualified public health practitioners who will foster optimum population health through disease prevention, health management, and community health education and empowerment. PH 360 provides a comprehensive practice and project-based training that bridges the gap between school-based academic theory and field-based practice. Trainees are thus equipped with the core competencies necessary to take on entry level or higher positions in a variety of public health agencies and organizations.

Under the tutelage and mentorship of world-renowned public health practitioners, PH 360 trainees are exposed to the foundations of public health, thus equipping them to address the social determinants of health and health disparities at the local, national and international levels. Upon completion, PH 360 trainees go on to work towards educating diverse populations on risk factors for ill-health, increasing access to healthcare, reducing disability due to illness, improving quality of lives, and transforming the lives of communities where they live or work.

PH 360 trainees are exposed to the foundations of public health, thus equipping them to address the social determinants of health and health disparities at the local, national and international levels.
