MPH for Attorneys

The School of Public Health at the University of Memphis offers a unique opportunity for attorneys to obtain a Master of Public Health degree in 12-months. Termed the “Fast Track MPH,” the MPH is earned in an intensive full-time format in which attorneys attend classes during the evening and online for 3 consecutive semesters (fall, spring, summer). As part of their coursework, students also complete a 240-hour community-based practicum.

The 42-credit program is designed to allow attorneys to extend their advocacy skills to a population health perspective and gain substantive knowledge in applying law and policy to public health problems. Special expertise will be gained in urban public health issues, health systems, public health policy, and environmental health advocacy. The program prepares attorneys for leadership in addressing public health policy issues related to access to healthcare, health reform, environmental justice, and social concerns that affect health equity.
