Princeton offers three global health teaching programs: an undergraduate certificate in Global Health and Health Policy (GHP), a graduate certificate in Health and Health Policy (HHP), and a Master in Public Policy (MPP) program for physicians.
Undergraduate Certificate in Global Health and Health Policy
In the Global Health and Health Policy certificate program Princeton undergraduates study the determinants, consequences, and patterns of disease across societies, the role of medical technologies and interventions in health improvements, and the economic, political, and social factors that shape domestic and global public health. The program examines health and health policy issues in developing and industrialized countries, and includes hands-on learning through a summer internship in global health research. Students from the natural and social sciences, engineering and the humanities participate in the program. Its graduates have gone on to pursue careers in domestic and international public health, medicine and health policy. More
Graduate Certificate in Health and Health Policy
The graduate Health and Health Policy certificate is offered through the Woodrow Wilson School’s graduate program and trains graduate students for health-related careers in the public and not-for-profit sectors. The program is designed for students with domestic and international health interests and provides broad training in core topics in health and health policy as well as courses in specialized areas. Graduates of this program have gone on to lead health programs and health policy initiatives at the local, state, national and global levels. More
Master in Public Policy for Physicians
The Master in Public Policy (MPP) program for physicians is offered through the Woodrow Wilson School’s graduate program. It was created to train students who aspire to careers that blend medicine and public policy in both developed and developing countries, and to provide medical professionals with the tools required to be effective in public sector positions. The MPP degree focuses on economics, politics, sociology, and statistics as tools for policy analysis – all of which are important skills for future health policymakers. More
