There is unprecedented demand for public health workers across the nation, with varied and complex contributing factors such as the global covid-19 pandemic, an aging population, advancing climate change and growing social inequities. By some estimates, an 80% workforce increase in state and local governmental public health departments is needed.
UC Davis Continuing and Professional Education’s online Public Health Certificate Program and courses can help meet this need by providing the foundational knowledge and practical skills necessary for current and future public health workers. Whether you’re interested in taking on higher-level roles to advance in your career or looking to enter a master’s of public health program, our online public health courses can help you get there.
When enrolling in your first course, you will first be asked to answer a brief questionnaire. Upon approval of your submitted responses, you will be emailed instructions on how to enroll. Please note that a bachelor’s degree, introductory level statistical knowledge, and familiarity with SAS programing prior to applying is highly recommended to be successful in these courses.
