Master of Health Administration
The School of Population and Public Health brings together outstanding students and faculty in a collaborative and innovative learning environment dedicated to the development of public health in Canada.
Part of the Faculty of the Medicine, the School focuses on training researchers and practitioners in the field of public health, preparing future leaders who will shape health care systems in Canada and globally. We offer a wide range of programs for students from varied backgrounds and career goals.
SPPH graduates secure senior roles in professional and academic settings, including positions in government, hospitals, acute and long-term care, rehabilitation, policy planning and analysis and health agencies. Many also go on to become clinicians and researchers, generating new knowledge and translating it into action to improve and sustain the health of the population.
