** Update: The summer 2020 program has been cancelled. We plan to offer it next year.**
The Pitt Summer Edge in Public and Global Health provides a comprehensive, hands-on introduction to public health. Learn to analyze and tackle critical world health problems through the integrated application of biological, social, and quantitative sciences while earning up to 12 credits. Develop the critical thinking skills and real-world tools used by health professionals to track outbreaks of emerging diseases, evaluate environmental threats, and develop community-based prevention and wellness programs.
Working with Pitt Public Health Faculty, Summer Edge students will explore laboratory, quantitative, policy, or social science research, or field work with community organizations or health agencies. The program follows Pitt's regular 12‑week summer session from May to August.
Open to anyone enrolled in a U.S. bachelor's program - not just Pitt undergrads!
