Academic Mission and Programs

Our Mission in the Gerald and Patricia Turpanjian School of Public Health (SPH) is to have a significant impact on improving the health of the people of Armenia and the region through interdisciplinary training and development of health professionals and others to be leaders in public health, health services research and evaluation, and health care delivery and management.  It offers an integrated approach to develop expertise in managing health programs, assessing the health needs of the people, and translating that knowledge into improving health by designing, implementing, and evaluating programs to meet those needs. The SPH Master of Public Health (MPH) Program engages experienced health professionals and others in transformational education and training in population-based approaches to health and health services research, delivery, and evaluation. Our graduates are then prepared to lead in improving health and health services in Armenia, the Caucasus, Europe, and the World. Our Vision is to advance health and produce leaders for Armenia and the region who can transform existing health systems for a modern society.
