Graduates of Medgar Evers College School of Science, Brooklyn College Health & Technology, and Health and Nutrition Sciences have announced that Medgar Evers’ students can receive priority admission consideration into the Master of Public Health program at SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University School of Public Health.
The MPH program will attract the best and brightest students who are passionate about improving the health of underserved communities. This arrangement will give students an excellent pathway to pursue their Master of Public Health degree and have a boost in their career path.
This collaboration follows a similar agreement announced last November with SUNY Old Westbury that gives the same priority admission consideration to students in Old Westbury’s Bachelor of Science program in Health and Society.
These three colleges reached an agreement late last year, with qualified students eligible to be considered for admission to the summer 2020 term. Kitaw Demissie, M.D., M.P.H, dean of the School of Public Health at SUNY Downstate, says, “We are pleased and privileged to provide a pathway for the students at Medgar Evers College and Brooklyn College to pursue their life’s passion.”
