Education & Training Opportunities

In a world of rapid innovation in the biological sciences, the emergence of new diseases, and changing environmental pressures, health security risks to the global community are a rising concern. The field of health security has a growing need for trained experts who can provide science-based solutions and inform global policies to shape preparedness and response efforts. Currently, health security and Global Catastrophic Biological Risks (GCBRs) are not routinely integrated into the academic, research, and policy communities. The Center for Health Security offers coursework, practicum opportunities, scholarships, fellowships, and other programs to improve preparedness for and response to public health emergencies and enhance community resilience.

The Health Security PhD Track is offered within the Bloomberg School of Public Health Environmental Health and Engineering Department.
