Wayne State University

Aim Higher

School of Medicine

Our mission is to educate and engage students in theory, practice and interdisciplinary research focused on understanding and improving the public health of urban and underserved communities on a local, national, and global scale. Our location in the Wayne State University Medical Center in the City of Detroit could not be better for achieving our mission and reducing health disparities.  Our faculty use a variety of teaching methods to appeal to different learning styles and inspire our students to excel in academics and research.  Many of our students continue their graduate studies once they earn their MPH and our most recent graduates are now employed as research coordinators, health educators, toxicologists, epidemiologists, and analysts.

We are one of only two programs accredited by the Council for Education in Public Health (CEPH) in the State of Michigan and our program, faculty, students and graduates are prepared to make a difference in our community!  We invite you to explore our website to learn about our degrees and our public health initiatives. Please contact us at MPHProgram@med.wayne.edu if you have any questions.  We are looking forward to hearing from you.
