With 75 years as one of the nation's preeminent academic institutions in the field of public health, on a campus with a public mission, the Berkeley SPH is in a unique position to lead scholarly, social and health change and has a reputation for excellence in research, education, and community engagement. Our 12,000 Berkeley graduates are transformational health leaders across all health sectors, with a legacy of impact and innovation locally, nationally, and globally. The Bay Area is also at the forefront of innovations related to health delivery as well as racial, gender, sexuality and other forms of social equity and justice.
The mission of the MCAH Program is to develop the next generation of leaders equipped to solve the health challenges facing women, children, adolescents and families of the 21st century.

Faculty and students are responsive to newly emerging issues in MCAH and to the unique needs of the diverse communities and cultures of the San Francisco Bay area, State of California, and the world. Students are inspired to use their skills and expertise to achieve health equity for all.
Research/Practice: We seek applicants with demonstrated expertise in one or more of the following fields: social determinants of health, policy, MCAH practice, migration, health technology, children & youth with special health care needs, and consumer/family engagement. Preference will be given to candidates whose research focuses on MCAH issues and populations in the domestic US. Particular consideration will be given to candidates doing cutting edge work in the design, implementation, evaluation and practice of public health interventions.
