Public Health 360 (PH 360) is a hands-on training program that prepares the next generation of eminently-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. At the end of the program, trainees will be equipped with the core competencies necessary to assume entry to middle-level positions in a variety of public health agencies and organizations.
Under the tutelage and mentorship of world-renowned public health practitioners, PH 360 exposes trainees to the foundations of public health practice. Trainees are equipped to address the social determinants of health and health disparities at the local, national, and international levels. Upon successful completion of the program, PH 360 trainees go on to the important work of 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.
