A Dr. PH. Degree is a Doctor of Public Health degree. It is the highest degree in the field of Public Health and is a full-fledged doctorate degree. Like most doctorate degrees, in contrast to PhD degrees, the Dr.PH. degree is a professional degree, designed to provide graduates with a practical profession, with tools that can be applied to specific jobs that are in demand. With less of a focus on research, Dr.PH. degree programs delve into the world of Public Health and give students the raw materials needed in order to turn students into Public Health figures who can make a difference.
