Our maternal and child (MCH) program is a concentration of the Epidemiology discipline within the School of Public Health. We offer cohort-based learning and peer-to-peer mentoring. First year and second year students work closely with each other and faculty to develop thesis projects at a weekly MCH seminar.

MCH graduate training is available as a concentration of the Master of Public Health in Epidemiology or as a Graduate Certificate.

Our students come from a variety of disciplines including public health, pediatrics, obstetrics, gynecology, family medicine, dentistry, psychology, behavioral sciences, nursing, nutrition, social work, public policy and communications. 

Our faculty have primary appointments in the School of Public Health and work in a broad range of areas in maternal and child health. They provide academic advising as well as mentor students on their thesis and practicum projects. Read more about our faculty.
