Tsinghua University offers a postgraduate degree focused on global public health. Known as "International Master of Public Health" (IMPH in abbreviation), this program is aimed at contributing to the cultivation of a new generation of leaders working in the public health sectors in the developing world. With the participation of faculty at Tsinghua University and scholars from other parts of the world, the program's courses are taught in English and specifically designed for health officials, personnel working on disease prevention and health program managers from developing countries. This orientation, however, does not exclude applicants from developed countries who are interested in issues of public health in less developed nations. Such issues include, among other things, health service delivery, product accessibility and global health governance.


  • We aim to develop the capability of students in applying theories and analytical tools of the public health discipline to their work.
  • We aim to enhance the understanding of students about public health issues in China and the developing world.
  • We aim to improve the ability of students to take on greater leadership roles in solving public health problems.
  • We aim to promote China's cooperation with other countries by building a network of cooperation between our faculty and our graduates to work on global public health issues.
