TUSM Faculty

The Tufts University School of Medicine (TUSM) seeks to foster the development of our practitioners and educators to have a sustained positive impact on the health of individuals, communities, and the world.  

In support of this mission, the Public Health program offers a tuition scholarship benefit for TUSM-appointed faculty, whose primary appointment is with the School of Medicine, who want to pursue their Master of Public Health (MPH) at Tufts. 

Our goal is to better integrate public health into research and education programs throughout the School of Medicine and increase interdisciplinary work.

This excellent professional development opportunity will give you additional tools to improve health locally and globally through an interdisciplinary approach and address intersecting determinants that contribute to health inequities. 

The tuition benefit applies only to the Tufts MPH program (on-campus or online). Admitted faculty will be awarded a scholarship equivalent to 40% of the tuition.
