2 University of Miami s Epidemiology and Public Health programs received more than $15 million in federal research funding in Miami has a unique cultural and ethnic diversity. As a student, this provides tremendous opportunities to study the many social determinants of health. Ian Bishop, MD/MPH student Page 2

3 University of Miami s Graduate Programs in Public Health are accredited by the Council of Education for Public Health (CEPH) to develop leaders who will advance our knowledge of public health and translate that knowledge to create healthier communities. Based in South Florida one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse regions in the world we provide unparalleled opportunities for research, training and community service. The mission of the Graduate Programs in Epidemiology and Public Health is to develop leaders who can translate knowledge into policy and practice to promote health and prevent disease in human populations. PUBLIC HEALTH RESEARCH Our students and faculty investigate the epidemiology of different diseases and apply real-world prevention and intervention strategies to improve population health. These hands-on opportunities, along with a unique interdisciplinary collaboration with University of Miami graduate programs, set our Masters of Public Health programs apart.
