Department of Emergency Health Services

Research Excellence in Clinical Simulation, Mobile Integrated Healthcare, and Disaster Health


The Academic Department of Emergency Health Services offers a unique opportunity for the education of future Emergency Medical Services, Emergency Public Health, and Emergency Management professionals.

This is accomplished by providing broad liberal arts and sciences education which enhances the graduate employment opportunities as pre-hospital providers, policymakers, and managers. The Department of Emergency Health Services also provides a cutting-edge education for advancement to graduate, medical, and professional studies.

The Graduate program is primarily focused on preparing professionals for leadership roles in Disaster Health, Emergency Public Health, and Policy Development. The two-track curriculum is designed to provide graduate-level training and education to health care providers, researchers, educators, policymakers, and administrators. An Education concentration can be combined with either track. A post-baccalaureate certificate in Emergency Management is also offered.

As of Fall 2017, in conjunction with the School of Public Policy, we now offer concentrations in Emergency Health and Emergency Management within the Public Policy Ph.D. program.
