SPPH graduate students whose clinical, public health or research focus is in the area of maternal child health will self-select to be part of the MCH theme. When students apply to be admitted to the School of Population and Public Health, they apply to a specific degree program, not to the MCH theme. Within any degree they may align with the MCH theme. Membership in the MCH theme will mean that they take additional required courses and may choose from some of the recommended electives. The MCH Theme will not be listed on your official degree from the University but may be added to your CV. Please refer to the SPPH website for information on how to apply for degree programs.
