The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health is the public health school of Harvard University, located in the Longwood Medical Area of Boston, Massachusetts. The school grew out of the Harvard-MIT School for Health Officers,[4][5][6][7][8] the nation's first graduate training program in population health, which was founded in 1913 and then became the Harvard School of Public Health in 1922. Michelle Ann Williams became the school's dean in 2016 following the departure of former dean Julio Frenk.[9] She is the first African American to head a Harvard faculty.[10]

Considered a preeminent school of public health in the United States, Chan is ranked as the 2nd best public health school in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.[11]


The School traces its origins to the Harvard-MIT School for Health Officers, founded in 1913; Harvard calls it "the nation's first graduate training program in public health." In 1922, the School for Health Officers became the Harvard School of Public Health. In 1946, it was split off from the medical school and became a separate Harvard faculty.[12] It was renamed the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in 2014 in honor of a $350 million donation, the largest in Harvard's history at the time, from the Morningside Foundation,[13] run by Harvard School of Public Health alumnus Gerald Chan, SM '75, SD '79, and Ronnie Chan, the sons of T.H. Chan.[14][15]


The Master of Public Health program offers nine fields of study:

  • Clinical Effectiveness (CLE)
  • Epidemiology (EPI)
  • Global Health (GH)
  • Health and Social Behavior (HSB)
  • Health Management (HM)
  • Health Policy (HP)
  • Occupational and Environmental Health (OEH)
  • Quantitative Methods (QM)
  • Nutrition (NUT)[16]

  • Environmental Health (EH): SM, PhD, DrPH
  • Epidemiology (EPI): SM, DrPH
  • Genetics and Complex Diseases: PhD
  • Health Policy and Management: SM, PhD

The Harvard Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) was launched in 2014 as a multidisciplinary degree providing advanced education in public health along with mastery of skills in management, leadership, communications, and innovation thinking. The program is a cohort-based program emphasizing small-group learning and collaboration. The program is designed for three years – two years at Harvard, plus one year in a field-based doctoral project – although some students may take up to four years to complete the program. Academic training in the DrPH covers the biological, social, and economic foundations of public health, as well as essential statistical, quantitative, and methodological skills in the first year, an individualized course of study in your second year, and a field-based, capstone project called the DELTA (Doctoral Engagement in Leadership and Translation for Action) in the final year(s) of the program.[17]

PhD programs are offered under the aegis of the Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
