Acute public health events have become more frequent and widespread across many populations and nations. The skill sets necessary to operate in this fast, uncertain, and high-pressure environment are different than those necessary for business-as-usual public health operations.This professionally-oriented certificate program, geared toward providing in-service public health professionals, aims to fill this gap as professionals are faced with new and emerging operating realities during public health crises.
Students in the certificate in public health preparedness program will benefit from an interdisciplinary approach that draws upon knowledge and resources from across the University of Delaware. Courses taught will include instructors from units in the Department of Epidemiology (College of Health Sciences) and Communication (College of Arts and Sciences), the Disaster Research Center, and the Biden School.
