Academic Programs


Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Epidemiology

The MCH Epidemiology program is offered jointly by the University of Illinois at Chicago, School of Public Health's Divisions of Community Health Sciences and Epidemiology - Biostatistics. A student can pursue a Master's in Public Health (MPH) or Doctor of Philosophy degree focusing his/her studies in Maternal and Child Health Epidemiology as a concentration.

The MCH Epidemiology program is one of only a few programs in the nation specifically dedicated to the area of Maternal and Child Health Epidemiology.  The program was developed in response to a national call to increase the number of individuals who can assist state and local public health agencies in strengthening their data and analytic capacity related to the health of women, children and families.  Graduates of this program will have the analytic skills to enable them to perform many of the activities at a very high level: surveillance, assessment, planning, implementation, monitoring, evaluation, and policy development

Information for current students, including course requirements, course sequences, practicum requirements, and program proposals are available on the CHS MPH 101 Blackboard site and the PhD Student Community Blackboard site. All active CHS/MCH students have access to these sites. Click here to login to Blackboard.
