With our small class sizes, you will be guided and mentored by world-renowned faculty in health services research, health policy, and quality improvement who are committed to helping you achieve your career goals. You will join a tight-knit learning community and build a network of colleagues and healthcare innovators that you can turn to throughout your career.

Accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH), Dartmouth's MPH Program is offered in two formats, both of which allow you to take nearly all your classes with the same cohort of your peers:

  • 11 Months, On Campus – Through this accelerated MPH program, students take 4-5 classes full time.
  • 22 Months, Online/On Campus – Designed for working professionals, our two-year MPH classes are delivered online one at a time with three week-long on-campus sessions per year (for a total of six).

Our flexible program allows you to tailor the curriculum according to your specific interests and career goals. Dartmouth's Master of Public Health program is the place for you if you want to: use data analysis to impact policy, learn new quality improvement methods that will enable you to introduce meaningful change into a healthcare organization or system, or translate research findings into action to advance population health.

"I love what I do—we're getting a lot of momentum in using artificial intelligence at GE. We're innovating healthcare and that's what Dartmouth's MPH program taught me."
