About This Program
The certificate program provides graduate training in understanding the causes and consequences of mental disorders in populations. The courses describe the clinical and behavioral features and prevalence of mental and behavioral disorders. They also identify factors that influence the occurrence, persistence or severity of these disorders. The goals of the program are to increase the epidemiologic expertise of psychiatrists and other mental health professionals, as well as the number of epidemiologists, biostatisticians and health policy makers interested in psychiatric disorders.
The certificate program is open to currently enrolled masters and doctoral students at the Johns Hopkins University Schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health, with the exception of BSPH MAS students, who are not eligible to apply until they have completed their degree program, and students enrolled in degree programs in the Department of Mental Health.
