On Campus June 24-28 | July 8-12

The PopHealthExperience offers rising 7th-10th-graders an engaging and immersive introduction to the field of public health. Students will learn from Boston University School of Public Health faculty and graduate students about a range of public health topics, participate in hands-on research activities, discover career choices, and develop leadership skills.

Foundations of Public Health


Effective public health requires expertise from many disciplines, and students in public health sciences need to have a broad foundation of knowledge across these diverse disciplines in order to collaborate effectively with other health professionals.



The PHX webinars are a flexible offering that allow you to learn more about a population health topic on your own time. Join us for live-streaming of a webinar or come back and watch it later in our Media Library. Past webinar topics have included communicating science and social media presence.

Winter Institute

Each January we offer a wide range of programs that teach participants career-enhancing skills while they network with peers inside and outside of BUSPH.
