Description: The program has been conceived in response to the widely recognized need for opportunities to enhance prior training and build the skill set of public health professionals in Canada and abroad. The program builds on the unique strengths at UW in the areas of health behaviour and population health promotion, health informatics, and environmental health sciences through a course-based curriculum designed to enable public health professions to manage emerging issues in public health. The program will appeal to working health professionals who wish to upgrade their training on a part time basis, and will meet the needs of expanding population health agencies at the local, provincial, and federal level who are seeking highly trained public health planners and managers.
