Why Choose the Yale School of Public Health?
Experience diversity — of people, interests and opportunities
Yale School of Public Health welcomes students 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 programs 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.
At Yale research and learning go beyond the classroom and lab. Our students gain first-hand experience in the field and community through their academic work, applied practice and extracurricular activities.
The Yale School of Public Health strives to ensure the highest possible return on the investment you make in us. In doing so, we work tirelessly to provide incredible opportunities to gain professional experience, maximize career opportunities and your earning potential.

The Yale School of Public Health fosters a supportive environment for you to succeed, the assistance to achieve your professional goals, and a network of relationships that will benefit you throughout your lifetime.
Simply put, it is our goal to provide not only an education, but an environment of support and caring that fosters relationships which do not cease after your education is finished, but continue for a lifetime.
