The Center for Public Health Initiatives (CPHI) was created as a university-wide center in 2007 by the Provost’s Office in order to create an organizational home and academic base for Penn’s multi-disciplinary, inter-school Master of Public Health (MPH) degree program. We promote interdisciplinary research, education and practice in public health.

CPHI has grown into the epicenter of public health activities at the University, with structured initiatives around public health education, research, and community engagement. All of our work continues to provide support and growth for our world-class MPH program, a program housed in the School of Medicine with the collaboration of eight schools across the University.  Learn more about the MPH degree.
