The public health laboratories are vital components of the nation’s health infrastructure, but they currently lack opportunities for training and professional development. The DrPH program in Public Health and Clinical Laboratory Science and Practice is designed to provide advanced-practice professionals the skills they need to qualify for the national board examinations or become laboratory leaders. The coursework was designed and implemented by professionals in laboratory leadership positions across the country with an emphasis on enhancing laboratory leadership, management and scientific expertise. Designed for public health professionals, the DrPH allows the student to continue working while pursuing the doctoral degree. The curriculum requires a minimum of two online courses per term (Fall and Spring). There are three on-campus intensive trainings. One is the first fall (five days) with the other two occurring in consecutive summers (five days each).
