Our Mission

The mission of the Department of Epidemiology and Population Health is to generate and disseminate knowledge, and inform policy and practice in order to improve the health of the individual and society.

The unified Department of Epidemiology and Population Health (DEPH) at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and the Montefiore Medical Center, Bronx, New York, is home to more than 115 full-time, part-time and voluntary faculty. The Department ranks 13th among all US academic institutions in terms of NIH funds (FY 2011) for public health/preventive medical research. The DEPH provides training to a new generation of physicians, clinical researchers and other members of the public health workforce through its Clinical Research Training Program (M.S. degree) and medical school curriculum. The Department is one of the oldest of its kind, with origins in the first hospital-based Division of Social Medicine in the United States.
