The University of Pennsylvania's Center for Public Health Initiatives (CPHI) is a university-wide center which was founded in 2007 by the Provost’s Office. We promote interdisciplinary research, education and practice in public health.

The CPHI acts as the organizational home and academic base for Penn’s multi-disciplinary, inter-school Master in Public Health (MPH) degree program, which is one of the first multi-school accredited MPH Programs in the U.S. Learn more about the MPH degree.
