Alumni Board

The Goal of the Epidemiology Alumni Board is to improve our curriculum reform efforts by:

  • Providing feedback on proposed changes to the MPH and PhD curriculum regarding professional development training, internships, and applied practice experiences.
  • Providing feedback on the overall curriculum related to required vs. elective courses, new topics/classes that the curriculum needs to address, existing topics/classes that should be sunset.
  • Working with the Epidemiology Department in our efforts to field an alumni survey every 3 years (e.g., review content of survey, suggest additional items/topics to assess, discuss findings).
