A Message from the Chair, Ann Dozier, Ph.D.
Welcome to Public Health Sciences (PHS) at the University of Rochester Medical Center. We are a welcoming, dynamic group dedicated to the improvement of health and health care among diverse populations through research, learning, and community partnerships. Our faculty members engage in research activities across the lifespan from maternal-child health to long-term care. Our scientific inquiry uses a range of rigorous methodologies from high powered analytics to mixed methods.
Our educational offerings provide multiple alternatives. These include PhD programs in Epidemiology and Health Services Research, Master's programs in Public Health, Epidemiology, Clinical Investigation, and Health Services Research, and 6 Advanced Certificates in Epidemiology, Health Services Research, Biomedical Informatics, Public Health, and Regulatory Science. I invite you to explore our website to learn more about who we are and the services we offer.
