Curriculum - 2016-2017 Matriculation

Students begin the program with an intensive summer session at YSPH, where they complete M.P.H. core courses in Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Social and Behavioral Sciences. The first fall and spring semesters are spent at SOM, and students take courses at both schools during the remaining final year. In this program, students complete a minimum of 14 course units at YSPH and 52 course units at SOM. The 14 course units completed for the MPH can count towards the 52 course units required at SOM. 

Full time students at YSPH must carry a minimum of 4 course units each semester. If a course is waived, a substitute course must be identified.
