March, 2017: The Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH) offers the Master of Public Health (MPH) degree program India, in cooperation with the IIHMR University, Jaipur. The Master of Public Health is a two-year full-time program with a total number of 30 seats. Applications are invited for its 5th batch starting from October 2017. For the past four batches, all of whom have been placed very well, the MPH Program has been receiving admission interests from India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Myanmar.

According to Dr. SD, Gupta, Chairman, IIHMR University, “Public Health has changed dramatically in the last century. The John-Hopkins University-IIHMR University Master of Public Health (MPH) depicts the core strengths of both the institutions. Poised to meet the needs of students confronting public health challenges in South Asia, this program also blends the JHSPH’s excellence with IIHMR University’s expertise in Health Management Research. There is a dire necessity to build public health capacities in developing countries, especially in the low and middle income ones in the South. We need to focus on generating unlimited capacities and professional skills in public health education. Hence, it is time to re-examine our curriculums to ensure we are delivering education, research exposure, and learning experiences that are vibrant, viable, relevant and realistic. This is primarily the reason and what we aim to provide with the Johns Hopkins-IIHMR program of Master of Public Health.”

With regard to the heavily subsidized nature of the MPH, Dr. Gupta added, “What is even more striking is that, the program’s fee is one third of what a student would be shelling from his pocket when he opts for any other MPH program in the USA. The course fee for JHSPH/IIHMR MPH program is USD 22000. Students admitted to this program will be provided a travel and stay international scholarship to attend two-week course on Problem Solving in Public Health at an Intensive Institute at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Baltimore, USA. The MPH degree program is designed to focus on public health capacity building in developing countries, cultivate students’ health management skills so that they will be prepared to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of public health programs and services. The program will be able to prepare professionals for challenging careers in public health domain in the public as well as the private sector, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), national and multinational organizations”.
