Designed specifically for working professionals who are not afraid to ask tough questions and who are passionate about challenging the status quo, the 22-month program enables you to pursue your MPH online with minimal time away from your job.

Along the way, you will work closely with a small group of about 30 peers who bring variety of perspectives to the program as physicians, nurses, social workers, program managers, researchers, policy analysts, and administrators. With a 12:1 student-to-faculty ratio, you’ll also have direct access to the Institute’s world-renowned faculty who are the innovators behind many of the most disruptive ideas in health care today.

Students take one course at a time online (about 15 hours of work per week) and spend three weeks per year on the Dartmouth campus interacting face-to-face with each other and with faculty. Through case studies, problem sets, virtual classes, and video lectures, students take a deep dive into content such as epidemiology, biostatistics, and health care ethics. Mentored by a Dartmouth Institute faculty member, students also design and complete a practicum project. The practicums can range from a quality improvement project in a medical care setting to a project in policy analysis/development.

Whether your path is on the front lines as health care provider or working to understand the big-picture as a researcher or a policy analyst, at Dartmouth you'll have the opportunity to build a professional network that will allow you to achieve your career and academic goals.
