Pharmacy, PharmD—Direct Entry / Public Health, MPH

The School of Pharmacy and the Department of Health Sciences offer a combined Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) and Master of Public Health (MPH) program.

The combined PharmD/MPH program recognizes and reinforces the importance of public health in pharmacy practice. Central to addressing public health concerns, and in particular those associated with racial and ethnic health disparities, the program is committed to building a strong, diverse, and activist public health workforce. The goal of the program is to graduate professionals who are well educated in the complex issues associated with disparate health status and healthcare access. The combined PharmD/MPH program allows qualified and interested students an opportunity to achieve their goal of obtaining a more robust understanding of public health through an MPH degree while also completing their PharmD.

Refer to the School of Pharmacy PharmD -- Direct Entry and Department of Health Sciences Master of Public Health pages of this catalog for program requirements and technical standards. Students must adhere to all PharmD and MPH program standards, policies, and requirements as listed in the catalog, unless otherwise specified.

The Northeastern University Master of Public Health Program is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH). CEPH is an independent agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education to accredit schools of public health and public health programs outside of schools of public health.
