The curriculum has a strong emphasis on mentoring, both in terms of fieldwork placements and with the faculty. The core coursework for both curriculum options includes research, health systems, health policy, leadership, and social issues related to health.
Students take 3 courses in their curriculum option and 8 core courses. Two quarters of fieldwork provide students with an opportunity to participate in a setting that assists them in meeting their career goals. All students complete a scholarly inquiry requirement.
The standard program plans have students complete the 47 required credits in seven quarters. While it is possible to enroll during any quarter, beginning in the Autumn is best for course sequencing and learning.
