The School’s Doctor of Public Health program

In July 2014, the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health launched the Doctor of Public Health program. 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 School educate students for careers primarily in academia and other research settings.
