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.
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.
PH 360 trainees must subscribe to the following core values:
- Value diversity: diversity of thoughts, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender and national origin;
- Acknowledge that public health is global health: the health of communities and nations are intertwined; and
- Be respectful and collegial: we are passionate, empathetic, fun and collegial.
PH 360 is a joint program of GHEP’s two centers—the Center for Global Health and Health Policy, and the Center for Education and Education Policy. Faculty comprises of seasoned academics and practicing public health practitioners from different sectors including research, education, policy, international development, and healthcare.
