New PhD/MPH Program Offered
A new program leading to both PhD and MPH degrees has been created by the Integrated Graduate Program in the Life Sciences (IGP) and the MPH Program of the Department of Preventive Medicine. This distinctive field of study will train students in both laboratory research and interdisciplinary public health fields.
Graduates will be uniquely positioned to take leadership roles in academic, industrial, and government institutions by providing expertise in molecular or cellular approaches to population-based health questions. Says Steven J. Anderson, PhD, IGP associate director, “I don’t know of any other program like it in the United States.” The first accepted students will begin their studies in fall 2004. Dr. Anderson expects the inaugural class to comprise one to three students.
