The mission of the Master of Public Health Program at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston is to contribute to the protection and promotion of health in human populations by:
• Preparing health professionals to practice skillful and evidence-based preventive medicine and public health;
• Conducting and communicating research that informs the diverse fields within public health; and
• Providing interdisciplinary expertise in the service of academic, professional, and community-based public health organizations.
We work toward this mission through the development, integration, and continual improvement of activities from our rigorous instructional program, collaborative and productive research agendas, and wide-ranging service commitments.
