Maternal & Child Health Center of Excellence

Welcome to the BUSPH Center of Excellence (C.O.E.) in Maternal and Child Health (MCH)! We are very proud to be one of twelve MCH C.O.E.s in the United States, funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) of the Health Resources Service Administration (HRSA 2 T76 MC00017-20). As a Center, we offer specialized educational, leadership, research, and practice programs to give students pursuing an MCH education a leg up in their ultimate aim: to prepare for a dynamic career in MCH, be it designing and managing community programs, advocating for national policies, developing communication strategies, or participating in research with an international NGO. The BUSPH curriculum in combination with the Center’s extra-curricular opportunities will give you the knowledge, skills, and hands-on experience you need for your chosen area of practice.
