Master of Public Health Competencies: A Case Study Approach

Jones & Bartlett Learning

In October 2016, the Council on Education in Public Health (CEPH) released new competencies that all accredited Master of Public Health (MPH) programs must adhere to. Master of Public Health Competencies: A Case Study Approach covers each of the 22 required competencies to demonstrate how they can be applied in public health practice.

Spanning all five key disciplines of Public Health – biostatistics, epidemiology, health policy and management; social and behavioral sciences; and environmental and occupation health – Master of Public Health Competencies covers the full breadth of public health. Each chapter is focused on a single CEPH competency and provides the background of the public health issue, followed by a case study to learn that competency and understand its application. Written by MPH faculty and community practitioners and based on real world public practice, these concise case studies are accompanied by discussion questions that facilitate classroom discussion.
