Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Program


The Maternal and Child Health Program (MCH Program) at Drexel University's Dornsife School of Public Health is a multidisciplinary group of academics, clinicians and policy makers who strive to improve the health of women and children through education and research.

Dornsife's Maternal and Child Health Program is proud to be one of only nine institutions funded by the Health Resources & Services Administration through its MCH Public Health Catalyst Program.

Our program works to increase the number, diversity, and capacity of future MCH professionals through graduate training, school activities, leadership opportunities, mentorship, professional development, internships, and more. We welcome you to learn more about our group and our endeavors:
