EXECUTIVE PROGRAM FOR HEALTH PROFESSIONALS (EPH)
The Executive Weekend MPH program is a unique and customized program to serve the needs of the busy health care practitioner. Past and current students have represented many health care fields and specialties including physicians, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, occupational therapists and many more. This diversity provides students with the opportunity to meet and collaborate with colleagues from other specialties and geographic areas while enhancing the students ability to work in multi-disciplinary teams. Students gain strategic vision while participating on diverse teams with other students averaging three to 33 years of work experience in public health. Courses in this format are intensive, in-depth and offered one weekend a month on the Tampa campus. Small class sizes guarantee students individual attention and rich face to face interactions with experienced peers and faculty. Due to the customized nature of this program, additional fees are assessed and enrollment is limited. For more information, visit: http://publichealth.usf.edu/php/home.html.
