Welcome to the University of South Florida's
Public Health Practice Program

The health care system in the United States is undergoing unprecedented change in organization, financing, and access. Leaders in this rapidly changing environment need to be knowledgeable about these changes and what they mean for the future of the public health system.

The Public Health Practice (PHP) Program at USF provides individuals with the tools to provide leadership in public health. The PHP program is designed for those individuals who already have significant work experience in health-related settings and who wish to earn the MPH degree. As a student enrolled in the PHP program, you will obtain the best available knowledge and skills relevant to your work in a rapidly changing environment. At the same time, your perspective as a student is enriched by your experience in “real world” settings, experience which enhances the learning of other students.
