Making a Difference

Serap Aksoy's laboratory.

The School of Public Health has long trained the researchers, practitioners and educators needed to meet the world’s health challenges. In the laboratory and in the field, faculty and students collaborate to find answers, and alumni lead efforts to improve the health of individuals and populations around the globe.

The Yale School of Public Health is positioned to have a major impact on global health in the 21st century. The world’s most pressing health issues are addressed here by a faculty that the Chronicle of Higher Education reports is the most productive in the country. Master’s and doctoral applications have consistently risen, and Yale College students are seeking more opportunities to learn about public health. A new generation is coming to us with a passion for hard work that is worth doing.
