The Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) degree program at the University of Georgia College of Public Health is designed to prepare graduates for senior level public health practice careers.
Options are also available for students with interests in academia or applied research careers in public health. The program, administrated by the College’s Department of Health Policy and Management, is based on the UGA Gwinnett Campus.
The degree is designed for students with either a Master of Public Health or equivalent degree, or a professional doctorate in areas such as medicine, veterinary medicine, pharmacy or law. A minimum of three years (post master’s or professional degree) of relevant public health practice experience is required. Our enrollment is diverse, and students include current and former employees of state and local health agencies, non-profit organizations, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Environmental Protection Agency.
