Professor and Chair of Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases, Albert Ko, with a student.
Yale School of Public Health students come from a wide range of backgrounds and professional experiences. Whether you are an experienced health professional with an advanced degree or you are looking to pursue public health straight out of your undergraduate study, our program can be personalized to your academic and career interests. Given the interdisciplinary nature of public health, students are encouraged to build programs that include courses from other departments and schools at Yale University. This includes areas such as law, management, economics, environmental studies, social sciences, genomics, spirituality and medical practice. Research and learning go beyond the classroom and lab, as students gain first-hand experience in the field and community through their academic work, internship and extracurricular activities.
When you express interest in a specific study, the information from your profile will be sent to the doctor conducting that study. If you're eligible to participate, you may be contacted by a nurse or study coordinator.
If you select a health category rather than a specific study, doctors who have active studies in that area may contact you to ask if you would like to participate.
In both cases, you will be contacted by the preferred method (email or phone) that you specified in your profile.
