The Executive MPH is designed for health care professionals with at least three years’ experience who have reached a point in their career where they need the skills and knowledge to manage staff members, organizations and health systems.Students in the Executive MPH have diverse backgrounds including public health, hospital administrators, physicians, pharmacists, dentists, nurses, therapists, social workers, nursing facility administrators, and consultants.
Admission is limited to twenty-five highly qualified students. Students begin in the Fall semester and graduate after completion of forty-two credit hours in fourteen courses in May of the next academic year (five semesters in total).
The Executive MPH format is designed to maximize the transfer of knowledge between the health care professionals in each cohort through the exchange of ideas among students. The fourteen courses are taught by faculty members of the University of Southern Mississippi. Each faculty member is academically qualified with years of experience in their specialty area.Approximately one weekend per month (Friday & Saturday) is required for class attendance. The remainder of the course work is completed on-line in a confidential and secure environment. This hybrid format enables students not only the convenience of completing coursework online but allows for monthly in-class sessions with face-to-face interaction and discussion among Executive MPH students and faculty.
