  • Demonstrate effective communication skills and the ability to interact with both diverse individuals and communities utilizing public health education, community empowerment, and information dissemination
  • Integrate public health theories, models, and concepts across a broad range of disciplines (social, scientific, behavioural, etc.) into public health research and practice to produce or impact an intended public health outcome
  • Apply quantitative and qualitative research findings found in medical, public health, and social science journals to the identification and pursuit of opportunities for promoting health and preventing disease across the lifespan and for enhancing public health preparedness
  • Evaluate how the biological, environmental, socioeconomic, behavioural, and cultural determinants of health influence the global and societal burden of disease and contribute to health disparities
