Academic Advising

In addition to your student support specialist you will also be assigned an academic advisor, who has both teaching and administrative responsibilities within GPPH.

Your dedicated academic advisor can help you with the following:

  • Selecting electives appropriate to the student’s public health goals
  • Professional mentoring to students
  • Brainstorming career options
  • Networking/extracurricular activities
  • Advising specific to the public health field

Your academic advisor will send you an introduction email towards the end of your first course. This email will contain instructions on how you can book your first appointment.

Students are required to check-in with their academic advisor at least three times during their MPH program:

  • Term B or the student's 1st semester in the program
  • Following completion of 21-credits/Before Applied Practice Experience (APE)
  • Prior to the Integrative Learning Experience (ILE)
