JHSPH Admission Eligibility 2019

Requirements :

Two Years Experience

  • Students in the School – wide MPH program have at least two years of full – time, post – baccalaureate, health – related work experience OR a doctoral degree in a field underlying public health. Applicants in the process of gaining experience can apply before they have reached the two – year mark, as long as the requirement is fulfilled by the time of matriculation.
  • Though many of our students are physicians, a variety of backgrounds can fulfill this requirement, including health – related Peace Corp work, managing a research lab or covering health policy as a journalist. We encourage professionals from all fields to apply. Please visit the Program Overview for more information on professional backgrounds of admitted MPH students.
  • This requirement is waived for medical students who have completed two years of U.S. medical school curriculum, those who have finished medical school outside of the U.S., and all applicants to the dual – degree programs.

Please note : Applicants to the MPH / MBA Program with the Carey Business School are not eligible to waive this requirement.

Strong Academic Background

By the time a student matriculates into the program ( as opposed to apply for ), they must have completed :

  • One math course ( e.g., Calculus, Algebra or Statistics )
  • One introductory general biology course
  • One health – related science ( e.g., Microbiology, Nutrition, or Anatomy and Physiology ) OR a second biology course

Applicants who have an advanced degree beyond the baccalaureate ( e.g., MS, MA, MD, DDS, PHD, MBBS, BDS ) may apply without a standardized test score. However, they may be putting themselves at a disadvantage, particularly if their admission materials do not demonstrate significant quantitative and analytical skills. Also, these applicants may significantly reduce their chances of being awarded a scholarship.

Please note : Applicants to the MPH / MBA Program with the Carey Business School are not eligible to waive this requirement and are required to submit the GRE or GMAT.

Public Health Goals

Applicants must understand how studying public health relates to their professional aspirations. The application provides opportunities, like the personal statement, to explain past academic and work experiences, professional ambitions and how an MPH degree fits in with overall career goals.

Recommendation Letters

The application requires three letters of recommendation. The review committee prefers at least one professional and one academic letter.
