The PHX Summer Institute offers short, immersive programs open to professionals, from across sectors, with all levels of public health knowledge. We offer a wide range of programs that teach participants career-enhancing skills, from learning to plan effective, evidence-based interventions to refining their data analysis skills, all while networking with their peers inside and outside of BUSPH.

Hearing how participants will use these skills in their work makes PHX one of my favorite spots to teach!
