U.S. News & World Report’s 2023 list of the Best Public Health Schools ranks the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health (UCLA Fielding) tenth for a second year in a row. The rankings, released today, account for 195 U.S. schools and programs of public health accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health.

“We are pleased that the rankings acknowledge the continued excellence of the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health. Our school provides students with state-of-the art public health training from world-renowned faculty, and the opportunity to meaningfully engage in research and fieldwork here in Los Angeles and around the globe,” said UCLA Fielding School of Public Health dean and distinguished professor of biostatistics Dr. Ron Brookmeyer.

UCLA Fielding is home to one of the brightest and most diverse public health student populations in the United States, with students from 27 countries and every U.S. region. The school offers a variety of MPH, MS, MHA, and PhD degrees across five academic departments, in addition to a range of concurrent and articulated degrees, and is situated on the Westwood campus of UCLA, ranked by U.S. News & World Report as the number 1 public university in the country.

UCLA’s unified campus is an ideal environment for multidisciplinary collaboration — the schools of public health, medicine, law, nursing, management, public policy, dentistry, engineering and more are all co-located — and Los Angeles is an ideal setting to address public health challenges confronting our global community today. Home to a broad range of industries as well as 10 million residents who speak an estimated 224 languages, Los Angeles offers unparalleled opportunities for public health teaching, research, and service.

The UCLA Fielding School of Public Health, founded in 1961, is dedicated to enhancing the public's health by conducting innovative research, training future leaders and health professionals from diverse backgrounds, translating research into policy and practice, and serving our local communities and the communities of the nation and the world.
