Our students bring their passion, discipline, intelligence, and compassion to bear on the most pressing public health challenges we face. We equip them with the skills they need to translate that passion into meaningful work that impacts population health.
An interdisciplinary concentration through which students examine a variety of health issues, including population health and disease, health policy, cross-cultural and international aspects of health, the organizational and social structures through which health services are delivered and received, and the public health system.
A concentration designed to provide foundations that include basic statistical concepts and methodologies, and to expose students to the role of statistical thinking and analysis in interdisciplinary research and in the public sphere.
The Brown MPH has a singular purpose: to train leaders in public health who are armed with the skills to conduct research, bring about policy change, and positively affect the health of populations. The program includes an internship, a thesis, and the option of customizing your MPH with one of eight concentrations.
The Health Equity Scholars program provides MPH students with the opportunity to address health disparities through research and practice, while also gaining critical skills for leadership. Applicants must be working toward or possess a postsecondary degree from a Historically Black College or University (HBCU) or Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI).
The School of Public Health and the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs offer a dual degree Master of Public Health (MPH) and Master of Public Affairs (MPA) program, emphasizing a learning-by-doing approach.
The NextGen Scholars Program provides financial and academic support to outstanding students and graduates of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to pursue a Master’s degree in biostatistics at Brown University.
The signatures of Behavioral and Social Sciences training at Brown University include health behavior interventions development and evaluation, and collaboration across disciplines and between researchers and communities.
The primary mission of the doctoral program in Biostatistics is to provide the training necessary to carry out independent research in theory, methodology and application of statistics to important problems in biomedical research, including research biology, public health and clinical medicine.
The Doctoral Program in Epidemiology’s mission is to prepare students to become leading, independent investigators with rigorous training in epidemiologic methods, able to excel in academia, industry, government or public health practice.
The Health Services Research Doctoral Program offers training in research methods to advance knowledge of issues central to the improvement of population health by focusing on organizational characteristics of health care delivery systems, providers, and economic forces that shape consumer and provider behavior, as well as the policy environment in which these relationships exist.
Administered through the Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies (CAAS) – an internationally recognized home for leading addiction research - the fellowship emphasizes that intervention should be guided by sophisticated and fully developed theory that considers biological, social, and cultural influences and contexts.
CCEH provides a collaborative environment that supports trainees at all levels as they develop, learn or apply innovative methods to important public health problems at the intersection of environment and human wellbeing.
CESH strives to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals and populations by conducting research in and teaching the principles of, evidence synthesis. Our mission is to advance the state of our knowledge about what works in health care.
The postdoctoral programs at the Center for Gerontology and Healthcare Research provide fellows with an exciting opportunity to participate in groundbreaking, interdisciplinary research in such areas as health promotion and prevention, long-term care, community-based systems of care, healthcare organizations, and methodological approaches to health services research.
