    The MPH is a flagship programme offered by the School of Public Health, LKS Faculty of Medicine, the University of Hong Kong. Through this programme, students from diverse backgrounds and experiences acquired the specialized knowledge and competencies needed to become effective public health practitioners and leaders.

    Mode of Study
    Full-time: 1-year
    Part-time: 2-years (for local students only)

    ·       Capstone (15 credits) - Integrative culminating experience to synthesize and apply public health skills and competencies

    CEPH Accreditation
    HKU MPH is the first in the region and the only academic programme in Hong Kong fully accredited by the USA’s Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH), the longest standing accrediting body of public health schools and programmes in the world. A CEPH-accredited MPH qualification leads to eligibility to sit for the Certified in Public Health (CPH) exam and obtain the CPH credential.
