The Interdisciplinary Training in Population Health Overview at Boston University affords students the opportunity to synthesize foundational and certificate competencies.


Students in the Interdisciplinary Training in Population Health Overview program at Boston University will integrate and apply the knowledge and skills obtained throughout the degree program. ILEs will be tied to the student’s required functional certificate and will incorporate skills and content from their context certificate as appropriate. Students will only complete one ILE, regardless of the number of certificates they pursue. Students working to complete two functional certificates will meet with their faculty advisors and Career Services staff to determine which ILE option is best for their career interests.
