Solving health’s complexities for a better tomorrow.

Temple’s College of Public Health is leading a new movement to reimagine the future of public health. Through transdisciplinary research and interprofessional education, our faculty and students embrace public health as a catalyst for individual and community change and well-being. At our college, teams of professionals work together on innovative designs and delivery solutions for healthcare, disease prevention and social welfare. We are generating new knowledge, conducting state-of-the-art education, and training a new generation of clinicians and researchers.

The College of Public Health is one of the largest and most diverse colleges of its kind in the country, incorporating healthcare and health services disciplines as well as traditional public health programs. The college is home to the Departments of Communication Sciences and Disorders, Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, Health Services Administration and PolicyNursing, and Social and Behavioral Sciences, as well as the School of Social Work. Across our 20 disciplines and more than 50 academic programs, we are working to serve our students and our community.
