Seven Departments, One Mission

Seven departments comprise the heart of this school - each focused on one mission - to advance the public's health.

Step inside to explore what each department cares about, why its work matters and how it is making a difference.

You'll discover how each department is guided by a threefold commitment - to teaching, to research and to service - and how our real-world connections and Washington, DC location bring the classroom alive.

You'll also recognize that no single department has all the answers, and that we must bring together the creativity, resources and strategic skills that reside in all the public health disciplines to address the major challenges of our time. By their commitment to reach across boundaries to collaborate, our departments are helping to create a healthier world.
