“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
Public health leaders understand systemic problems, set new directions, lead change, and learn quickly from mistakes. They must have a deep sense of self and know how to connect and collaborate with others to address the most intractable population health challenges.
Our program focuses on creating opportunities to help students develop a greater understanding of themselves as leaders and learners. Through workshops, applied learning, coaching, and reflection, students learn how to work in teams, how to improve their self-awareness, and how they view and engage with others.
All Harvard Chan School students are welcome to participate in PHL Lab regardless of their degree program. As the PHL Lab does not offer a degree, prospective students must apply to a degree program offered by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Students must prioritize the requirements of their degree program first, and then incorporate the requirements of the PHL Lab into their academic schedule.
We invite you to join us in this work.
