Assuring the health of the public is an enormous local, national and global challenge. The UIC DrPH in Leadership program is designed for working public health practitioners with significant management experience and demonstrated leadership potential who are interested in joining their peers in a program that is modeled on action learning. Graduates of the DrPH program use their leadership and analytic skills to evaluate public health issues, programs and policies, communicate with policy makers and opinion leaders, and revolutionize the public health system. While many graduates use their degree to pursue new careers or career advancement in a range of governmental and community public health agencies at the federal, state and local levels; others choose to pursue academic careers.
