Pós-Graduação em Saúde Pública Faculdade de Medicina de Ribeirão Preto Universidade de São Paulo


Welcome to the Graduate Program in Public Health

The Program was created in 1971 under the name of “Graduate Program in Preventive Medicine”, exclusively for physicians. From the year 2000, the Program underwent a reformulation, became multiprofessional and was called “Graduate Program in Health Community”, reflecting its close connection with the nascent Family Health Strategy.

In 2018, the Program expands its focus, in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and is renamed to “Graduate Program in Public Health.” Since its creation, it has been linked to the Department of Social Medicine (DMS) of FMRP – USP.
