Office of Educational Initiatives

The Office of Educational Initiatives is here to provide logistical support as you navigate your academics at Mailman. For all students, OEI is a point of contact for the MPH shared curriculum and Certificate programming as well as other degree programs. OEI serves as the central hub for new school-wide academic initiatives. Additionally, OEI establishes and manages policies that support academic programs.

OEI also distributes vouchers to qualified students for the Certified Public Health exam offered through the National Board of Public Health Examiners.
