Special Features Interdisciplinary curriculum Basic core courses include an overview of the five core competencies of public health, namely Biological Statistics, Epidemiology, Health Policy and Management, Environmental Health Sciences, and Health and Behavioral Sciences. These core courses set the foundation of knowledge and techniques that enable students to adequately prepare for future practice in public health. Practicum training In contrast to a traditional master's thesis, our MPH program requires that students closely observe and analyze problems related to public health and venture possible solutions to overcome them. Practically oriented courses to meet the changing needs of society Experts and professionals in public health are regularly invited to provide a variety of viewpoints related to all aspects of healthcare institutions. A course of public health forum Our innovative inclusion of a platform for prominent experts (both domestic and international) with a background in public health to interact directly with the students successfully diversifies the knowledge sources on which students can draw. The theoretical and practical knowledge they provide is an important educational resource capable of extending the learning process beyond Core Values Compassion, Integrity, Teamwork, Equality (CITE) Overview The Master of Public Health Degree Program in National Taiwan University (NTU MPH) is the first interdepartmental master program offered in Taiwan.
