DBEI Partners with MPH Program on New Epidemiology Track

DBEI Partners with MPH Program on New Epidemiology Track

Dec. 4, 2023. The Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Informatics (DBEI) at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine and the Master of Public Health (MPH) Program at the University of Pennsylvania have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to establish a new Epidemiology track within the MPH Program. The expansion of the program addresses the need for experts who can approach complex health issues from an epidemiological perspective.

“As we continue to face global public health challenges, such as the Covid-19 pandemic, the climate crisis, and the opioid epidemic – to name a few timely examples – it is more important than ever to produce public health professionals who possess a deep understanding of the patterns, causes, and effects of health-related issues within populations," said Enrique Schisterman, PhD, the Chair of the DBEI and the Perelman Professor in Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Informatics. Learn more about this exciting new partnership and how to apply to the highly competitive Epidemiology track.

About Us

To understand health and disease today, we need new thinking and novel science —the kind  we create when multiple disciplines work together from the ground up. That is why this department has put forward a bold vision in population-health science: a single academic home for biostatistics, epidemiology and informatics.
