Masters in Public Health (MPH)

This is a two year course offered as a day and evening program. It is geared towards preparing experienced health officers with the additional competencies needed for planning, managing, and assessing the health services to be provided to the people of Rwanda.

The credits for the classroom and fieldwork components of the program are in line with recognized MPH programs in Africa and elsewhere.

The day program has a special feature whereby the participants maintain their current responsibilities while undertaking their academic training. A major advantage of this approach is that these participants are able to immediately practice and put into action their new competencies. It is expected that the academic program will require absences from their posts during 3 to 4 weeks every three months and up to 50% of the student’s time for fieldwork upon return to their posts.
