Dramatic changes in our nation’s healthcare delivery system, coupled with a national priority on disease prevention and healthy living, are prompting a growing demand for highly qualified public health leaders.

In our PhD in Public Health program, you can study current public health initiatives, explore what makes them successful, and discuss strategies for creating and leading your own initiatives.

When you earn your PhD in Public Health from Walden, you won’t just change your world, you’ll change the world of others, too. You’ll explore strategies that help promote positive health changes for entire populations and play an important role in improving the health of individuals, your community, and beyond.

"I now have the language, the confidence and the understanding to really go and make an impact." - Melissa Thomas
