Teaching Public Health Symposium

Teaching Excellence in Public Health | March 28th, 2018


Academic public health has been growing substantially over the past two decades, and, commensurately, teaching in academic public health has been growing at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Coincident with this growth, 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.

Recordings and resources from the Teaching Public Health Symposium held at BUSPH on 3/28/18 can be found below.
