A written and oral qualifying exam is required upon successful completion of the required coursework.
The Public & Community Health PhD program is part of MCW’s Institute for Health & Equity, a multidisciplinary department and center that aims to address societal issues through academic/community partnerships and education programs that integrate medicine and population health.
