About the Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health

The Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health is the newest of 16 schools/ faculties within The National University of Singapore (NUS). Founded in 1905, NUS is the largest and most respected university in the nation. It is ranked 28th in the world in the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings 2011-2012, and 3rd in Asia in the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) Asian University Rankings 2011.

NUS is a leading global university centered in Asia, offering a global approach to education and research, with a focus on Asian perspectives and expertise. It is an innovative, research- intensive university with over 36,000 students from 100 countries.

The  Saw  Swee  Hock  School  of  Public  Health  (SSHSPH)  builds  upon  over  60  years  of experience in research, teaching and practice. With a distinctly Asian focus, the School highlights:

  • Identifying, developing and testing innovative solutions which integrate different research discoveries into potential Public Health actions;
  • Collecting, collating and integrating data and evidence to inform Public Health policies;
  • Implementing a broad-based curriculum that focuses upon the multidisciplinary nature of public health problems and solutions.

Moving beyond the traditional domains of chronic disease etiology and risk factors, SSHSPH emphasizes new technologies and methods to measure and monitor exposure and disease, as well as new approaches to develop and implement public health programs and policies. From the use of mathematical and econometric modeling to better inform public health policies, to the development and evaluation of genomic tools to better understand gene-environment interactions,  the  underlying  motivation  is  to  generate  relevant  research  with  practical applications.

To remain relevant, the School actively collaborates with many partners: London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Karolinska Institutet, Harvard School of Public Health and University of Michigan School of Public Health, just to name a few.

At the postgraduate level, the School’s flagship program leads to the Master of Public Health (MPH) degree. The MPH Program attracts students from a wide range of disciplines from within Singapore and throughout the region.

SSHSPH is also a member of the National University Health System (NUHS), the first academic medical centre in Singapore. As part of NUHS, SSHSPH works closely with the National University Hospital in hospital-based health services and primary care research.
