Our graduates are well-positioned to tackle dynamic healthcare needs and public policy issues, particularly as they pertain to the underserved and those living on the margins.
There has never been a more important time to build a new interdisciplinary health sciences and public health school.

CHOIR is at the forefront of the Parkinson School's research and education enterprise through intramural pilot awards, educational seminar series and training opportunities. In addition to CHIE and CHOIR, the Parkinson School serves as home to Loyola's participation in the Institute for Translational Medicine (ITM). The ITM is a Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) partnership between the University of Chicago and Rush University in collaboration with Loyola University Chicago, Advocate Aurora Health, the Illinois Institute of Technology, and NorthShore University Health System. The cross-institutional collaboration is fueled by $51 million in grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The ITM is part of the national network of more than 60 NIH-supported CTSA sites working on clinical informatics innovation and accelerating the time it takes to develop and implement new treatments and health innovation into practice. Collectively, these initiatives bring together research institutions, clinicians, patients, and patient advocates to implement policies and programs to improve healthcare quality and health outcomes for the region by building, strengthening, and leveraging data infrastructure and expertise.

Loyola University Chicago Highlights
Loyola University Chicago is best known as Chicago's Jesuit Catholic University. Recognizing Loyola's excellence, U.S. News and World Report consistently ranks it among the top national universities and #8 in the nation in online Bachelor's programs (2020). Loyola is also among a select group of universities recognized for community service and engagement by prestigious national organizations like the Carnegie Foundation and the Corporation for National and Community Service. Further, Loyola is one of only eight percent of all American colleges and universities to have a Phi Beta Kappa honor society chapter.
At Loyola University Chicago, we are driven by our Jesuit tradition of social justice, our service to humanity, and our role as an institution of higher education to create a more equitable and sustainable future for our local and global communities. Two of the University's most recent advances illustrate this overarching commitment and represent areas of productive collaboration for faculty of the Parkinson School. Loyola's newest School, the School of Environmental Sustainability, is the first-ever school dedicated to environmental sustainability across Jesuit institutions worldwide. Another first of its kind at a Jesuit University, the Institute for Racial Justice is a mission priority and aspires to examine racism in all its forms. Through interdisciplinary research and collaboration, the Institute will seek new ways of connection and action to facilitate greater equity and justice.
About the Department
The Department of Public Health Sciences is home to research and education programs on population health and health equity.
Faculty research interests include chronic and infectious disease epidemiology, health services and outcomes, vector control, and health behavior and health promotion. The department's research is often conducted in collaboration with community partners. As a small department in a new school, teamwork is essential and innovation is prized in pursuit of our mission, grounded in the Jesuit tradition of social justice, to prepare public health professionals through collaborative community-engaged education, ethical practice, research, and service to improve population health.
The department's educational programs include a Master of Public Health (MPH) (established in 2009), Bachelor of Science in Public Health (BSPH) (est. 2019), a Clinical Research Methods and Epidemiology Master of Science (est. 2005), several joint degree programs and a graduate certificate.

BSPH majors begin to take MPH coursework during their senior year, allowing them to complete both BSPH and MPH degrees in five years. Our MPH and BSPH programs are accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health.
