Our department is home to a unique blend of faculty and students with expansive perspectives, grounded in rigorous training. From the molecular pathway to the community, we recognize that genetics, behavior, neighborhoods, and geography play essential roles in health and wellness. We apply and teach evidence-based best practices in public health, and use biomedical informatics as well as novel statistical and computational methods to reveal variables that inform disease or influence clinical outcomes.
Our department is an integral part of one of the nation’s top 25 Schools of Medicine, a leader in interdisciplinary professional training. We are change agents, dedicated to cultivating the next generation of researchers, professionals, and clinicians who will continue the transformation of health care, applying population and quantitative health sciences.
