Applied Research Methods in Public Health Certificate

The Applied Research Methods in Public Health Certificate consists of five courses (15 credits) and builds on the strength of Lehman's Public Health Program. This certificate is designed to attract and prepare health care professionals working in hospitals, community health centers, and other health care facilities in the Bronx and/or the metropolitan region to develop or up-grade their research skills and knowledge of public health. The Certificate Program can also serve as an entry into the M.P.H. Program for students who maintain good standing throughout the certificate program. The Certificate Program credits will transfer into the M.P.H. Program if students are accepted through the formal application process.

Courses are as follows:

  • PHE 600: Biostatistics in Public Health
  • PHE 606: Public Health Epidemiology
  • PHE 723: Advanced Methods in Epidemiology
  • PHE 710: Applications of Research Methods in Public Health
  • PHE 700 or a PHE elective with adviser's permission

The admissions requirements will include submission of an undergraduate transcript with a minimum 3.0 GPA, and a graduate transcript, if applicable; a current curriculum vitae; three years of public health or health-related work experience; two academic and/or professional letters of recommendation; and a personal essay or statement.
