Professional Development in Health Communication

Clinicians, policy-makers, and public health professionals must be well versed across a wide range of media and audiences to be highly effective communicators. Digital media affects health literacy, strategies needed to reach target populations, and overall impact of communication campaigns, but affords the opportunity for wider promotion of behavior change. The Professional Development in Health Communication program enables public health and health care professionals to keep pace with changes in digital communication. These intensive courses provide hands-on training from Tufts faculty as well as professionals in the health communication field.

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.
