Overview

The Dalla Lana School of Public Health enrols more than 400 graduate students in its master's and doctoral degree programs. In addition, the school has more than 40 postgraduate students in its two Royal College Residency programs: Public Health and Preventive Medicine and Occupational Medicine. The school is also engaged in teaching at the undergraduate level in the Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Arts and Science, and Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing.

The Graduate Department of Public Health Sciences at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health offers five graduate degrees, available both full-time and part-time. With the exception of the Bioethics program, applicants are strongly advised to have some background in statistics and quantitative methods. In addition, field and employment experience are considered, especially for the Master of Public Health (MPH) degree. Documented interest and experience in global health is required for participation in the Global Public Health emphasis. Further information is available on the website.

The Master of Public Health (MPH) degree is designed to prepare the next generation of public health professionals and is aimed at students interested in professional and/or research careers in the community, academic, public, or private sectors. Five fields are offered:

  • Epidemiology

  • Family and Community Medicine

  • Health Promotion (Social and Behavioural Health Sciences)

  • Nutrition and Dietetics

  • Occupational and Environmental Health

The Master of Science (MSc) degree is designed for students interested in research and academic careers involving the development and application of statistical methodology to further our understanding of data arising in the health sciences. One field is offered:

  • Biostatistics

The Master of Health Science (MHSc) in Bioethics is a two-year course-based program with no thesis requirement. It is conducted in modular format to allow high-achieving professionals to earn a master's degree without interrupting their careers. The program's interactive, problem-based learning approach provides students with knowledge and skills that can be applied to a variety of health, health care, and health research contexts. Expert faculty and guest lecturers help students bring theory and practice together to address real-world ethical challenges. Students interested in a research-stream program should consider the Collaborative Program in Bioethics.​

The Master of Science in Community Health (MScCH) degree is an innovative program designed to meet the needs of experienced health professionals who wish to enhance their knowledge and skills in public health. It is intended for practising health professionals and/or individuals who can demonstrate significant experience in the health care field. Five fields are offered:

  • Addictions and Mental Health

  • Family and Community Medicine

  • Health Practitioner Teacher Education

  • Occupational Health Care

  • Wound Prevention and Care

The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree prepares students for research and academic careers. Fieldwork and research enhance theoretical studies and expose students to the full breadth and depth of their public health science disciplines. Fields include:

  • Biostatistics

  • Epidemiology

  • Occupational and Environmental Health

  • Social and Behavioural Health Sciences

The PhD program may be completed on a full-time or flexible-time basis.

​Required Courses

Courses are restricted to students officially enrolled in the MHSc in Bioethics and the Collaborative Program in Bioethics, except where noted. All courses are understood as "or equivalent" in order to accommodate the diverse background education and training of applicants.

Courses in Year 1 of the program cover key topic areas in bioethics, and concentrate on providing students with the theoretical foundations of the field in terms of legal frameworks, research methods, philosophical approaches, and resource allocation ethics. The application of theory to practice in clinical, organizational, and research settings is emphasized.

Courses in Year 2 of the program give students the opportunity to further develop core knowledge (e.g., in research ethics, organizational and health systems ethics) while adding more core skill competencies, such as teaching bioethics, developing a bioethics curriculum, and contributing to bioethics scholarship (including the preparation of a paper in publishable form covering an area or issue of the student's choice). Based on their individual interests in the areas and activities of bioethics, students complete a mentored applied learning course (practicum), and a practical bioethics course that aims to support the student in preparing a "capstone" project that, ideally, builds on the practicum experience and the core knowledge and skills gained throughout the MHSc program.​
