"Berkeley has the most phenomenal professors, and at any time they have several ongoing research projects. They are absolutely excited and willing to engage students at all levels of the research program."
The Maternal and Child Health Program has provided superior graduate training, continuing education, research, and service since its founding in 1953. The program has more than 1,000 alumni across the country and around the world. It is our mission to promote and protect the health status and well-being of women, infants, children, adolescents and their families through excellence in training, research, continuing education, service, and advocacy. All of the program's activities are designed to be interdisciplinary and responsive to newly emerging issues in maternal and child health and to the unique needs of the diverse communities and cultures of the San Francisco Bay Area, State of California, and internationally.
