Public Health (Bridge Graduate Certificate)

The Bridge Graduate Certificate in Public Health Practice (BGC-PH) provides specialized training for individuals of varying backgrounds and experience who are committed to working in a public health related field.  The BGC-PH provides a valuable foundation of core public health knowledge in epidemiology, biostatistics, environmental health, and the social basis of health.

Admission to the BGC-PH is contingent upon admission to the Graduate School. (See also School of Medicine Graduate Program policies.)  Contact the  MPH Program  for specific admission requirements. BGC-PH applications are considered for fall, winter, and spring-summer semesters. Students may enroll in the certificate program concurrently with a regular graduate degree program (e.g. M.S., M.A., or Ph.D.).

BGC-PH candidates must complete a minimum of 15 credits of course work.  All course work must be completed within three years in accordance with the regulations of the Graduate School and the School of Medicine governing graduate scholarship and degrees.
