This unique and exciting doctoral program prepares scholars to be knowledgeable and innovative leaders capable of effectively addressing the world’s most challenging and complex public health problems. The three-year, cohort-based distance program is designed for diverse professionals working full time in field-based settings around the world. Classes are delivered in real time via internet video. Scholars meet face-to-face for a few days three times per year in years one and two of the program. Most in-person sessions take place in Indianapolis, Indiana; other times, the program meets elsewhere in the U.S. or around the world. Scholars complete dissertations or field-based, culminating projects in year three.
Some international scholars admitted into the DrPH program may need visas to enter the United States for the three short residential visits in years one and two. For those who require it, the IUPUI Office of International Affairs assists with issuance of a form I-20 required for an F-1 visa.
