An Innovative, Trans-disciplinary Professional Training Program in Public Health and One Health and Planetary Health, offered by Cornell’s Graduate School
Starting in Fall 2017, Cornell University will offer a campus-wide Master of Public Health (MPH) program that will create public health leaders who are inspired, developed, and trained to ensure the health of people, animals, and the world in which we live.
Cornell’s MPH program will be founded on the “Planetary Health” paradigm which focuses on the multiple types of relationships connecting humans, animals, and the environment. This paradigm recognizes that we must take a trans-disciplinary approach to public health issues, encourages us to draw from the best practices of complementary disciplines, and allows us to look beyond traditional human health models.
The program will be led by experts from multiple fields across the university to reinforce a multidisciplinary approach that will prepare graduates to tackle diverse public health issues at the municipal, state, national, and international levels.
