Public Health Leadership Lab

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
-Mary Oliver

Welcome! 

We have updated our website with program information for the 2021 – 2022 academic year.  Please check the pages on the left for dates/times of our different events.  Meanwhile, if you are interested in engaging with the program, please fill out the interest form.  Please reach out to us if you have questions: phl@hsph.harvard.edu

Experiential activityPublic 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.

In the 2021 – 2022 academic year, we will continue to deliver the Public Health Leadership (PHL) Lab remotely and students can choose to attend either a 6:30AM, Wednesday or 5:30PM, Thursday section (times are in ET).  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.  Specifically for this academic year, students who are interested in leadership content but do not have the time to fully commit as a Participant or Concentrator have the option to view our leadership instructional videos and participate in live integration sessions.  Please visit the Workshops page for more information.

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.
