Graduate students in the Bloomberg School of Public Health are invited to teach undergraduate courses at the Homewood campus. The goal of the program is to enrich the undergraduate curriculum with innovative courses incorporating new trends and topics in public health.
A key component of the PHS program is the Applied Experience requirement, which allows students to work in the field with public health professionals. Students receive practical public health exposure and mentoring in clinical, research, or community settings.
The majority of classes are taught by faculty from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the top-ranking school of public health in America. As seniors, all PHS majors take graduate courses at the Bloomberg School.
