PhD in Health

Preparing the next generation of leaders in health

The PhD in Health will prepare the next generation of researchers, academics and leaders in health to answer questions critical to improving health and social well-being locally, nationally and internationally.  The program is designed to recognize and respond to the World Health Organization's (WHO) definition of health as "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."  As part of the program, students will complete a focused, research intensive program of study contextualized within the broader health perspective.
