The Milken Institute School of Public Health at George Washington University is “a 21st century center of global public health leadership,” tackling many of the world’s most pressing public health challenges with a focus on prevention of disease and promotion of wellness. From its Washington, D.C., base, the school is ideally located for collaboration with major U.S. and international health institutions and schools of public health to drive change. Originally established by GW in 1977 as the School of Public Health and Health Services, the Milken Institute School of Public Health is the result of a transformative $80-million gift from the Milken Institute, Milken Family Foundation and the Sumner M. Redstone Charitable Foundation. Today, more than 1,100 students from nearly every U.S. state and more than 40 nations pursue undergraduate, graduate and doctoral-level degrees in public health. The school also offers an online Master of Public Health, MPH@GW, which allows students to pursue their degree from anywhere in the world.
