The MCH faculty are committed to their role of teacher and mentor inside and beyond the classroom. Their research brings depth and a real-life context to the classroom.  MCH faculty focus on women, children, youth and ultimately, all family members, using a framework that combines the study of how humans develop across their life span and how the multiple determinants of health interact across people’s lives and across generations.  The curriculum is also committed to practice and research that is family centered and culturally competent.  Faculty research has led to strengthened state laws improving the quality of hospital interpreter services for linguistic and cultural minorities, federal policy that expands coverage of women’s health beyond the prenatal period, and the design of programs to reduce infant mortality in Boston and beyond.

Bios for the full- and part-time faculty can be found under the Faculty & Staff tab at sph.bu.edu.

Adjunct Teaching Faculty

In addition to the faculty based at the School, BUSPH employs a number of experienced public health professionals from the community as adjunct faculty. These adjunct faculty bring a wealth of information to the classroom as well as help build bridges between the communities that surround the Boston University Medical Campus. Additionally, they often connect students with practica, research opportunities, and community events.
