Dear Potential MPH Student,
As the first school of public health in Israel, the Braun School of Public Health and Community Medicine at Hebrew University-Hadassah has 50 years of experience in training public health professionals from Israel and from nearly 100 countries across the globe. Our MPH degree has been awarded to more than 850 graduates from low, medium and high income countries since 1960, and more than a thousand Israelis.
The International Master of Public Health (IMPH) Program offers a scientifically stimulating and culturally rewarding experience of studying in a foreign country and interacting with peers from diverse professional and cultural backgrounds in the unique setting of Jerusalem about which the late Nobel Prize Laureate the late Elie Weisel wrote "Jerusalem: The city which no one can enter it and go away unchanged".
The one-year APHEA-accredited English-language IMPH Program provides its trainees with tools for examining public health challenges and formulating relevant responses at the institutional, community and national level. We help our students develop knowledge and skills in a broad range of public health disciplines, thus preparing them to take up key positions as leaders and teachers in their home countries, in areas such as HIV, malaria and tuberculosis prevention and control, prevention and treatment of heart disease, diabetes and other non-communicable diseases, combating malnutrition and tobacco use, and fighting the stigma associated with mental illness. An equally important goal of the IMPH Program is to instill in our students a love and respect for the Land of Israel and its people.
The teachers and staff of the IMPH will do their utmost to make you feel at home while you undertake this demanding, yet very rewarding, curriculum of study.
Acceptance into the Program is competitive and selected applicants from lower-income countries are offered generous scholarships that cover the costs of studying in the Program.
