The Braun School’s International Masters Program in Public Health (IMPH), draws students from developing countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. The IMPH Program was established in 1971 to fulfill the Braun School’s mission to “strive to improve the physical, mental and social welfare of the global community”.  To date, the  IMPH degree has been awarded to nearly 700 graduates from over 85 countries in developing and transition regions, as well as developed countries of North America and Western Europe.

The 12-month, English-language IMPH program offers a scientifically stimulating and culturally rewarding experience of studying in a foreign country and interacting with peers from different professional and cultural backgrounds.  The program provides its trainees with tools for examining public health problems and formulating relevant responses at the institutional, community and national level. Students develop knowledge and skills in a broad range of public health disciplines.  They are then prepared to take up key positions as leaders and teachers in their home countries, in areas such as HIV, malaria and tuberculosis prevention and control, prevention and treatment of heart disease, diabetes and other non-communicable diseases, combating malnutrition and tobacco use, and fighting the stigma associated with mental illness. An equally important goal of the IMPH program is to instill in students a love and respect for  Israel and its people.   Learn more about the Braun School’s International Masters in Public Health Program
