Public and Population Health Leadership Concentration 
Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences

The Public and Population Health Leadership Concentration allows students to explore social and systems-based aspects of the public health field against the backdrop of a strong foundation in biomedical sciences. Students will learn to take a "whole-systems" approach to population health leadership, collaborative styles of inquiry, data collection and use, and evidence-based practice to inform decision-making. Concentration coursework is delivered online and is available to students at all PCOM locations.


After completing foundation year coursework, students may progress to the second-year degree concentration in public and population health leadership.
