Professional Development in Health Communication

Health communication is critical in today’s fast changing health care landscape. With the explosion of health-related websites, social media technologies, and mobile apps, clinicians, policy-makers, and public health professionals must be well versed in effective health communication across a wide range of media and audiences. Health literacy, strategies to reach target populations, communication campaigns and promotion of behavior change are all affected by these technological shifts. The Professional Development in Health Communication program enables public health and health care professionals to keep pace with these changes with intensive courses. These courses provide hands-on training both from Tufts faculty and professionals in the field working to develop and implement effective health communication.

If five or more employees from the same organization enroll in a professional development course, a 20% discount will be given on each employee's tuition. 

On Campus Courses

Courses are held in Boston at Tufts University's Health Sciences Campus, unless otherwise noted. For all classroom-based courses, breakfast and lunch are included in the tuition.
