An Innovative, Trans-disciplinary Professional Training Program in Public Health, One Health & Planetary Health
Cornell University offers a campus-wide Master of Public Health (MPH) program that creates 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 is 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 is led by experts from multiple fields across the university to reinforce a multidisciplinary approach that prepares graduates to tackle diverse public health issues at the municipal, state, national, and international levels.
