School of Public Health


The UW MCH program is a small, close-knit community of about 15-20 students and 5 faculty members. The Peer Mentor Program pairs incoming first year students with second year students who offer support and insight. This small cohort provides a non-competitive academic environment where students get to know each other and our core faculty. In addition to the weekly MCH seminar in fall and spring quarters, students get together to work on their theses in Special Interest Groups.
