Masters of Public Health

The Institute of Health Sciences (IHS) offers a student-centric, competency-based, and job-oriented Master of Public Health (MPH) programme to create the next generation of public health professionals, managers, health policy makers, public health practitioners, research leaders, and academicians.

The MPH programme at IHS ensures learning by practice and enables students to solve public health problems at the community, health facility, and health system levels. In addition, value-added certificate courses such as scientific writing, communication & interpersonal skills, technology & health, research methods, evidence synthesis, manuscript publishing, etc., will give IHS students to stand out among their peers. This interdisciplinary MPH programme is aimed at graduating public health specialists in various domains of public health practice to fulfill the shortage of skilled human resources in India and the world. Since the need and demands for health needs of the community are evolving, the scope of public health is also widening over time.
