Welcome to the UW School of Public Health's Executive MPH Program
The Executive MPH Program at the University of Washington offers working professionals the opportunity to expand their knowledge and skills in public health and health services while continuing their careers.
Program and course curricula are based on public health competencies and over 30 years of successful evidence-based practice.
By offering coursework via partial distance, professionals can continue their careers while receiving a quality education.
Program graduates hold positions in the highest echelons of public health across the nation and internationally. See Program Profiles.
Several academic options are available to public health professionals:
