Pride Bite: NSU College of Osteopathic Medicine’s Online Public Health Program Rates Among the Best Nationally

Dr. Cyril Blavo-2014

Cyril Blavo, D.O.

Public Health Online, a leading online resource for public health education and careers, recently published a new list of the Best Online Master of Public Health (MPH) Programs for 2014-15, which ranked Nova Southeastern University’s (NSU) College of Osteopathic Medicine’s Online Public Health Program No. 17 out of the top 50 in the United States.

“NSU is proud to be ranked among the best master of public health programs in the nation,” said Cyril Blavo, D.O., M.S., M.P.H. & T.M., F.A.C.O.P., director and professor of public health, Master of Public Health Program, NSU’s College of Osteopathic Medicine. “A value deeply entrenched in our university is providing services to those who may not otherwise have access, and educating community leaders and health care providers in the tenets of public health is a proven way to achieve this goal.”

Included programs not only meet the standard of excellence of traditional on-campus public health programs, but also provide students the flexibility to continue their higher education through the graduate level while working and building experience in their chosen field, according to Public Health Online.

“Earning a master’s degree and having work experience could be the difference between getting the job and not,” said Wes Harris, founder of Public Health Online. “Today’s working professionals need the flexible learning options these online MPH programs offer. It’s important for students and working professionals to know their options when it comes to furthering their careers.”
