Online MPH Programs in Michigan 

There are fewer options for an online MPH in Michigan than in other states, but there are still institutions you can attend, especially if you want a hybrid program of online and on-campus learning. 

Andrews University offers a fully online program focusing on vegetarian nutrition and the Seventh-day Adventist worldview. The University of Michigan also offers an online MPH program, though there are fewer concentrations than the school’s on-campus offering. 

Grand Valley State University offers a hybrid model, where students meet on campus one weekend per semester with the rest of the coursework taking place online. 

Public Health Careers Outlook in Michigan 

Projected job growth for public health careers in Michigan is good, though not as strong as the nation overall. Likewise, public health salaries tend to be in line with or lower than the U.S. average. Here is a sampling of jobs, salaries and projected job growth in Michigan and the United States. All data is provided by  O*NET OnLine , a website managed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Specializations to Consider in Michigan 

Job growth in Michigan from 2018 and 2028 is projected to be greatest for biostatisticians (23%) and health specialties professors (18%), though growth is anticipated in every public health career in Michigan except for health informatics specialists. 

In most cases, national average salaries are a little higher than those in Michigan, except for epidemiologists (almost $2,500 over the national average) and medical records and health information technicians (more than $10,000 over the national average). However, projected job growth for medical records and health information technicians is much less in Michigan than across the United States.

Based on this data, if pay is a priority, it may be worth pursuing a Master of Public Health in Michigan that has a specialty related to biostatistics, health specialties, epidemiology or health informatics.

Organizations to Work for With a Public Health Degree

Below are some organizations in Michigan in which a public health degree may prove useful. 

  • Michigan Public Health Institute : This nonprofit public health institute works with schools, government, community-based organizations and healthcare providers to promote health and well-being in the state, region and nation. 
  • Michigan Department of Health and Human Services:  The Department of Health and Human Services acts as an umbrella organization for state programs on everything from assistance to children and family services to public safety and environmental health. 
  • Detroit Health Department : This city health department has been providing public health services to Detroiters for over 100 years, and has led many public health efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is also active in initiatives such as making Detroit’s water system lead-free.  
  • Michigan Association for Local Public Health : Unique in the United States, this private, nonprofit state organization was organized to represent Michigan’s 45 city, county and district health departments before the state and federal legislative and executive branches of government.
  • Michigan Public Health Association : Michigan’s affiliate of the American Public Health Association promotes public health throughout the state, sponsors research and communicates on health issues.
  • Henry Ford Health System : This healthcare system, which comprises five hospitals and other locations, offers jobs ranging from community project coordination to grant research and project management.

Current Master's student: Calvin University is a great college. However, the transition of in-person programs to online courses still need some work. The online program is confusing and unorganized. 16-week courses are condensed into 8 weeks, the amount of information can be overwhelming, and there is little actual explanations for what students are required to learn. Review sessions end up becoming even more confusing as any questions asked are not directly answered. Online students are required to figure out much of what they are being given and are offered little direction or support. ... Read 8 reviews

Niche User: I have enjoyed my program very much. The other professors are encouraging, yet, challenging in just the way I need it to grow as a student. I love learning online as well to eliminate the travel of getting to a class. I have learned much and look forward to graduating in the Spring. I had originally gotten my associates degree and worked as a nurse early in my 20's. I have raised my 10 children and now want to move into some administrative work with the experience I've gained. I love the field of health care and look forward to having an opportunity to make an impact here in the U.S. and globally. I have gone to the country of Myanmar now for 3 months at a time every year the past 8 years. I have seen great disparities there in health care and my hope is to be able to go and make a difference working and helping lead them into a better tomorrow for their people by working as a nurse/health care leader.

Center for IPE student spotlight: Lauren Gardner, University of Michigan School of Public Health

public health phd michigan

The Center for Interprofessional Education works with undergraduate, graduate and professional students from all ten health science schools across the University of Michigan. Get to know the remarkable students who are learning to work in interprofessional teams while earning their Michigan degree.

Lauren Gardner (she/her) is a graduate student at the University of Michigan School of Public Health earning a Master of Health Services Administration degree. Her passion for IPE is shaped by her commitment to teamwork and a desire to improve systems for the benefit of patients. Read on to learn how Lauren has been working with the Center for IPE to improve collaborative care at Michigan Medicine.

public health phd michigan

What drew you to your field of study?  

A focus on health and well-being has always been a part of my identity. As a kid, I fell in love with the sport of field hockey which led me to becoming an athletic trainer. As a masters student at California State University, Fullerton, I learned about the importance of patient-centered care and the impact that teamwork has on health care outcomes. After my residency program, I worked as a clinical athletic trainer and practice manager within Michigan Medicine’s MedSport office. A large portion of my work was expediting complex scheduling and patient communication across Michigan Medicine. I learned the true value of care coordination that extends beyond creating a seamless patient experience — putting the patient at the center of their health care journey and creating opportunities for patients to be true members of their health care team. 

After working in the clinical setting throughout the pandemic, I felt called to develop my skills as a leader, innovator and advocate for myself, patients, my peers and the profession that has taught me so much. This ultimately motivated me to pursue my career in health care administration with a focus on systems-based change to facilitate high quality and accessible care for all patients. 

Why did you decide to attend the University of Michigan?  

Ann Arbor has not only been my home since 2018, but it is home to one of the most prestigious universities and health care systems in the country. I could not imagine going to school anywhere else! 

Please describe your involvement in the Center for IPE .

Throughout my career as a practicing athletic trainer, I saw the impact of a cohesive team approach on clinical practice and continuity of care. Although I did not have the words to describe it at the time, what I was experiencing was the result of interprofessional collaboration.

As a part of my current academic program, I had the opportunity to partner with the Center for IPE for a semester-long immersive field experience. I was welcomed with open arms by Dr. Raj Mangrulkar, Vani Patterson and the rest of the Center for IPE team. 

I was able to contribute to a project focused on understanding the relationship between patient and provider expectations of team-based care. As a part of this work, I was able to join the Educator Development workgroup where we are developing tools to improve collaborative health care practices in our own system. 

Why is interprofessional education important to you?  

Taking a note from Coach Bo Schembechler in his famous speech to the Michigan Football Team in 1983: “The Team, The Team, The Team.” 

In health care we bring together a group of individuals who are experts in their respective areas, but we can only provide comprehensive care in a group environment.  I truly believe that interprofessional education and practices are the gateway to high quality, safe and effective health care. Through the Center for IPE’s research, I have come to understand that our patients are experiencing a segmented health care system. The great news is that there is so much that we can do to improve this — by facilitating collaborative health care practices within our own corners of the health care community, we can move closer to providing the best care we can for our patients. 

How have you grown since becoming involved with the Center for IPE?  

Since joining the Center for IPE, I have had the opportunity to develop my patient advocacy skills in ways that I never imagined were possible. Partnering on projects that develop an understanding of systems-based collaborative care practices and the tools needed to solve those issues has been a true joy. 

I recently attended the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Forum , where I presented the work our team is doing around how patients perceive team-based care at Michigan Medicine. Our presentation generated insightful conversations and feedback around the work we are doing at C-IPE. Developing proposals, presentations and posters have sharpened my skills in translating this research to application beyond our own health care system as many are facing the same challenges across the country.  

public health phd michigan

Who or what has inspired you on your educational journey?  

I frequently reflect on my first week of my graduate assistant position at California State University, Fullerton. I had just moved across the country without knowing a soul and despite having the certification saying I was ready to care for patients, I felt anything but prepared. 

Our head athletic trainer, Julie Max, met with us during orientation week and during this conversation, my outlook on the transition from student to practice shifted. I realized that she was not expecting me to do this all on my own  — the team was there to make sure that we all succeeded. She created an athletic medicine environment at CSUF that was shaped by teamwork. She led our team of staff, AT students, student-athletes, coaches and physicians with love and continues to inspire the future generation of athletic trainers even in her well-deserved retirement. 

During that first orientation meeting many years ago, she explained her desire for us to pick up “pearls” of information or skills during our time as graduate assistants. She hoped that we would hold them close to us and retrieve them throughout our careers. Leading with love and creating a collaborative environment are my largest pearls that she has given me and I will carry these proudly throughout the remainder of my career in health care. 

What is your ultimate career goal after graduation?

After graduation, I will be joining the Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO) as a project manager right here in Ann Arbor. I could not be more excited to join this global non-profit organization dedicated to advancing knowledge in extracorporeal life support.

What do you like to do for fun outside of school?  

Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend, Jake, and my chihuahua, Ringo. We like to spend time exploring downtown Ann Arbor, especially the food scene. 

What is your favorite spot on campus or place in Ann Arbor?  

My new favorite spot in Ann Arbor is Lowerton Bar & Cafe on Broadway in downtown Ann Arbor. They recently opened and have been a great spot to study and grab a great local coffee!

Ming-Wen An, PhD '08

Ming-Wen An, PhD '08, is currently an associate professor in the Department of Mathematics at Vassar College.

Ming-Wen An, PhD '08, is currently an associate professor in the Department of Mathematics at Vassar College, a small four-year undergraduate liberal arts college in Poughkeepsie, NY. She writes, “Increasingly more small liberal arts schools are seeking to expand their statistics programs (often housed in a Department of Mathematics), so if you enjoy working with undergraduates and getting them excited about statistics, now is an especially good time for such opportunities.”

An's thesis, under the direction of Constantine Frangakis, was entitled "On the Importance of Designs in Better Addressing Missing Data Due to Death and to Loss-to-Followup."

How did you get interested in the field of biostatistics? What was your background before enrolling at Hopkins?

During the summer after my first year of college, I interned with the Division of Biostatistics at the Mayo Clinic (Minnesota). I had an excellent mentor who invited me to all of his meetings with his collaborators (medical researchers), where in the first few minutes of the meeting he asked the collaborator to describe to me the medical context. They then proceeded with a dialogue on the research questions and statistical issues. Outside of meetings, my mentor took time to introduce me to basic statistical thinking (I hadn't had any formal statistics courses yet). I also was paired with a data analyst who trained me in statistical software (SAS) and assigned me projects. It was a summer of "learning by doing" (or "watching," in some cases). I was fascinated by the integration of math / statistical thinking and "real-world" medical problems, and how by the very nature of collaborative work, there's always something new to be learned either about statistics or about medicine. I was intrigued enough by this first summer internship that I returned the following summer, and then again for two years after college as a "data analyst" before applying to graduate school.

Describe your current position and responsibilities in a way that will inform prospective students about career opportunities in biostatistics.

I am currently an associate professor in the Department of Mathematics & Statistics at Vassar College, a small 4-year undergraduate liberal arts college in Poughkeepsie NY. My responsibilities include teaching (undergraduates), research, and service, with a heavy emphasis on the former two.

How did Johns Hopkins Biostatistics prepare you for your career? What aspects of the program did you find most useful?

Aside from the thesis research which expectedly prepared me for a career in research, some "well-defined" aspects that prepared me for my current role include: (1) teaching assistantship; (2) consulting in the Consulting Center and among peers; and (3) collaborative projects.

(1) In my role as a TA, I enjoyed a range of responsibilities including grading homework & exams, planning & leading lab discussions, helping to draft exams, and holding office hours.

(2) My role as a consultant in the Consulting Center (30-minute one-on-one drop-in sessions) helped me work on skills such as communication, statistical thinking about problems, and "on-the-spot" thinking. I also had many informal "consulting sessions" among peers from around the School of Public Health, which introduced me to fascinating research in public health (which I sometimes share now with my students who are exploring career options).

(3) I had the opportunity to engage in several collaborative projects through my training grant (Clinical Trials/Epidemiology) and through other less formal mechanisms. All of these gave me experience in data analysis and working in longer-term collaborations.

What are your favorite memories of your time at Johns Hopkins Biostatistics?

My favorite memory from Hopkins Biostatistics is definitely the people (students and faculty alike). One of the reasons I initially chose Hopkins was the warm feeling of family and camaraderie in the department and this remains one of my fondest memories. The people are central to all my memorable experiences such as department retreats (Hershey, Pennsylvania; Maryland's Eastern Shore); lunch in our student offices; conversations on topics from statistics to life; study sessions; etc. In addition to the people, another favorite (though odd) memory is the space (3rd floor JHSPH) where we happily spent much of our time as students.

Is there any other information about your experience at Hopkins that would be useful for prospective students?

Though I had one formal thesis advisor, in actuality I had multiple advisors/mentors among all of the biostats faculty. An advantage of a smaller department is that students not only get to know each other, but also the faculty, fairly well. I benefited greatly from being able to work with different faculty members formally through mentored projects and informally through conversations in the office or hallway. Working with different faculty on research projects introduced me to not only different areas of research, but also different styles of doing research and approaching problems. I'd encourage all students to take advantage of and soak in the brilliance, intelligence, and generosity of the Hopkins faculty.
