We are now accepting applications for the October 29, 2018, class start. Request more information here.

All three certificate programs educate professionals wishing to continue their professional education in the field of public health or other healthcare professionals (including physicians and nurses) who want to explore public health further. The certificates are offered to individuals who have a bachelor’s degree in any field and are interested in acquiring a new, specialized set of skills. Each certificate can be completed in as little as one year and all coursework is completed online.

Public Health Generalist Certificate

The Public Health Generalist Certificate is designed to meet the continuing professional education needs of persons employed in the field of population health. This certificate offering helps individuals gain an overview of the core public health disciplines like behavioral health, environmental health and epidemiology.

Epidemiology Certificate

The Epidemiology Certificate is designed to meet the continuing professional education needs of persons employed in the field of population health. This certificate offering provides students with an in-depth understanding of the implications of epidemiological methods within the context of infectious disease.

Global Health Certificate

The Global Health Certificate will provide students with the basic background and theory of working with public health issues in a global context.

These three certificates offer the same courses, content, instruction and assessment as Chamberlain’s College of Health Professions Master of Public Health (MPH) degree program . The MPH degree prepares students (nurses and non-nurses) to become public health practitioners who work with communities and populations throughout the world to promote healthy living and prevent community health problems such as disease, poverty, health access disparities and violence.
