Established graduate schools and programs of public health are redesigning curricula to meet the changing needs of incoming students and to ensure that graduates have the knowledge, skills, and attributes to meet the needs of a changing workforce. Includes resources from the Teaching Public Health Symposium held at BUSPH on 3/28/18.
A modern public health education is relevant and practical, and the foundational tools it supplies are regularly integrated into a wide variety of careers. Institutions that offer a public health education have a responsibility to teach professionals that will bring these skills to new sectors, fields, and disciplines. As this demand grows and changes, so must the programs.
“The importance of engaging multiple disciplines in the challenges facing public health means that it will no longer be possible to work without considering clinical medicine, engineering, and urban planning, to name but a few key fields”.
