Doctoral Program

The department offers advanced doctoral research training for students who are likely to pursue careers in academic departments related to global health and population studies or in research-related positions outside of academia.  Most students in the program have a prior graduate degree in a related field and/or some relevant work experience in global health.  Recent graduates have assumed postdoctoral and teaching positions with universities in the United States and around the world or, have taken positions with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Bank, the World Health Organization and many different non-governmental organizations.

There are currently 30 doctoral students in Global Health and Population of which, 13 are international students.
