HSPH’s new Doctor of Public Health program
This year the Harvard School of Public Health is launching the new Doctor of Public Health. The primary career orientation of graduates of the Harvard DrPH degree is for leadership roles in the health sector. While some graduates at some point in their career will enter academia, this is not the central goal of the program. The PhD and SD degrees at the Harvard School of Public Health educate students for careers primarily in academia and other research settings. The transformative program will be launched in July 2014.
