The Public Health program of Morehouse School of Medicine provides the public health theory that supports the social mission of MSM.


The mission of the Public Health program of Morehouse School of Medicine is to develop, through graduate education, public health leaders who are fluent in community-focused public health research and practice, particularly in underserved communities. 

Key facts:

 We offer a generalist curriculum focused on community health in underserved populations. The M.P.H. Program was established in 1995 to address the increasing shortage of underrepresented minorities in leadership positions in the field of public health. The Program was accredited initially in 1999 by the Council on Education for Public Health making it the first accredited M.P.H. Program at an HBCU. The Program was reaccredited in 2007.  Graduates of the program are working at community-based organizations, as well as local, state, national and international agencies. Additionally, many have pursued terminal degrees including M.D., Ph.D., DrPH, J.D., and other advanced degrees (eg. MBA and PA).
