With a 12 to 1 student to faculty ratio, our students work alongside renowned epidemiologists, health educators, scientists, and health economists who are dedicated to teaching and mentorship. We have built partnerships with over 450 organizations, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization, as well as Georgia's major health care systems, local nonprofits, and state agencies, all ready to take on our student interns.

And with a presence in each of Georgia's 159 counties, our students have unique opportunities to gain firsthand experience in research and practice and see their work change communities for the better.
