Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health

The Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) is one of the professional graduate schools of Harvard University, located in the Longwood Medical Area of Boston, Massachusetts neighborhood of Mission Hill, which is next to Harvard Medical School. HSPH is considered a significant school focusing on health in the United States. Harvard School of Public Health grew out of the Harvard-MIT School for Health Officers, the nation's first graduate training program in population health, which was founded in 1913 and became Harvard School of Public Health in 1922. Julio Frenk, the Minister of Health of Mexico from 2000 to 2006 and a former executive director of the World Health Organization (WHO), became the new dean of HSPH in January 2009.

As one of the most selective and prestigious public health schools in the world, the middle 50 percent of the class that entered in 2006 had an incoming GPA between 3.50 and 3.75 (out of 4.0). About half of HSPH students already hold a medical doctorate (M.D. or D.O.), with many of the rest holding another advanced degree (typically a DPM, DDS/DMD, PhD, JD, or MBA). HSPH students are drawn from around the world, with about 40 percent of the student body coming from outside of the United States.

Overall, HSPH is ranked third after the University of North Carolina School of Public Health in the 2011, U.S. News & World Report. The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health was ranked first in the same report. U.S. News consistently ranks Harvard #1 in Health Policy and Management.
