The Morehouse School of Medicine MPH Program has identified competent and qualified faculty committed to research, teaching and service in the field of public health. The program has the advantage of drawing other faculty from within the Department of Community Health and Preventive Medicine.
Core teaching faculty include those with either full-time appointment in the Master of Public Health Program or who teach one of the required core or track courses. The core faculty consists of those of African-American, African, Caucasian and Middle Eastern descent. Other faculty who support the program include those who teach MPH elective courses, directed study, serve on thesis committees, or supervise/mentor students conducting research.
Most adjunct faculty are full-time employees of other organizations, such as the county or state health departments, community agencies, CDC, or other academic institutions. They contribute to teaching or other services to the program. Adjunct faculty and consultants are comprised of a broad range of disciplines and research interests, including economics, bioethics, legislation and policy, human rights, reproductive health, epidemiology and nutrition.
