The Executive PHAP program allows you to advance your career in public health administration, management, data management, and policy. This program blends online and on-campus curricula tailored to working public health and population health professionals currently in or seeking leadership roles that aim to improve the health of populations.

Hybrid/Cohort-Based Model
