About the Program

Take your passion for public health worldwide. Work with international partners to learn best practices for promoting and providing equitable healthcare for people all around the world.

This advanced degree is an innovative, multi-institutional program jointly offered by the UAB Heersink School of Medicine and the UAB School of Public Health. Collaborations amongst the Sparkman Center for Global Health, the Mary Heersink Institute for Global Health, the Global Health Consortium, and other international partners make this a truly global program. You’ll learn from an array of elective courses on maternal child health, international partnerships and policy, and health equity; plus, you’ll have opportunities for hands-on learning through cutting-edge global health research and practice. Finally, you can choose between two program formats: a 36-credit hour Scholarly Project Track or a 38-credit hour Thesis Track. The scholarly project is built within the curriculum track, while the thesis track allows for more time one-on-one with an established researcher.
