"The MPH is the perfect complement to any health professional degree. Mine has given me an opportunity to work with disadvantaged populations, compelled me to analyze and dissect research in a more meaningful way, and broadened my understanding of the forces that impact human health and behavior. My PharmD provides me the knowledge to optimize patient drug therapy but my MPH reminds me that I need to treat the patient as a whole, not just a set of signs and symptoms."       

-Hugh Ngo, PharmD, MPH - Class of 2014



"The Touro MPH program allowed me to pursue the MPH after-hours and on weekends at a pace that allowed me to continue full time work. I use what I learned in the MPH program every day in my care of patients and in my work in the community. This is an exciting time in Medicine as we prepare to insure millions of Americans with health insurance and the MPH program gave me a new set of tools to succeed in the planning and implementation of health reform in my community."

"My experience with the MPH Program at Touro University California has been instrumental in my decisions to continue with academic ambitions to become a physician and to pursue clinical/translational research opportunities. The faculty understands the importance of a solid educational foundation and real world practicum by motivating students to engage in efforts and experiences outside of the university. With a foundation from courses like health disparities in the community and health promotion and education, and collaborations with the local community, students leave the program prepared to contribute and affect positive change."

"The Public Health program helped me to understand global public health challenges and their impact on human socioeconomic development. While at TUC, I gained knowledge about the diseases of underdeveloped and developing nations.  Infectious diseases, although considered to only be prevalent in developing countries, are finding themselves in developed nations due to globalization and immigration. I learned about global aid and it impact (both positive and negative) on developing countries."
