Dean Laura A. Siminoff portrait

At Temple University’s College of Public Health, we are redeveloping public health in its fullest form. Driven by innovation, extensive academic breadth and commitment to serving others, we are deepening our roots and leveraging our disciplinary diversity to define an integrated and advanced model of education, research and practice. 

We see public health as a transdisciplinary approach to understanding the factors that shape the health of individuals and populations—as well as the ways in which those factors affect the design of healthcare and its delivery to individuals. Across our 20 disciplines and more than 50 academic programs, we are advancing the cutting edge of interprofessional research and education. By enabling our students to practice as teams and educating them to be leaders in their fields, our graduates have earned the reputation as some of the best prepared and most sought after in the workforce.

Because the greatest challenges of our time will not be solved by a single discipline, working collaboratively is essential to all endeavors that affect the health and well-being of individuals and populations. The college has a diverse portfolio of research strengths in complex issues such as aging and elder abuse, autism, cancer, child and family welfare, chronic illness, communication disorders, health disparities, end-of-life care, HIV/AIDS, homelessness, social justice, mental health and illness, obesity, organ donation, poverty, substance abuse, violence and trauma informed care, LGBTQ health and much more.

Together, we are redefining what it means to be leaders in public health. I invite you to learn more and to join our community.
