Public Health and Preventative Medicine

Public Health & Preventive Medicine

We prepare public health professionals who are committed to improving health outcomes from local to global communities, and to addressing inequities in health within these communities

Public Health and Preventive Medicine

The Department of Public Health & Preventive Medicine is one of 26 departments that constitute the Norton College of Medicine at Upstate Medical University. We are committed to educating students and conducting research in the broad disciplines of public health, preventive medicine, health promotion, and health services for the communities we serve.

In addition to housing the Upstate Master of Public Health (including the MPH, MD/MPH, and CAS programs), the department teaches in the MD program, and also houses:

  • The Consortium for Culture and Medicine – an educational consortium of regional universities and colleges dedicated to teaching humanities content related to medicine
  • Community Engaged Learning Program – an office that connects MD students to learning opportunities in the Central NY community
  • The Center for Research & Evaluation – a biostatistical and research methods core facility

 Additionally, faculty engage in their own research, scholarship, and service endeavors.

Public Health Programs

Keeping the public healthy is the overall goal of the Upstate Public Health Program, and we provide a variety of opportunities to a diverse group of students who are also seeking to impact the health of the population.

Center for Research and Evaluation

The Center for Research and Evaluation conducts, supports, and disseminates research that aims to improve clinical outcomes and enhance public health. The center offers design, methodological, analytic, and biostatistical consultation to the faculty, and researchers in Central New York.
