ATSU-CGHS launching emergency preparedness and response certificate program

September 10, 2020
Posted In: ATSU News, ATSU Schools, CGHS, Faculty & Staff Headlines, Student Headlines, University Headlines

As the coronavirus pandemic exposed healthcare weaknesses nationwide, A.T. Still University’s College of Graduate Health Studies (ATSU-CGHS) looked at ways to provide something in short supply—public health professionals with experience in emergency preparedness. 

ATSU-CGHS will begin offering a four-course Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Response certificate program in January 2021. The program provides experience in emergency management systems, an introduction to various forms of disasters and public health threats, and instruction in response skills essential to public health.

Students will need to complete Introduction to Public Health, Epidemiology, Global Health, and Public Health Emergency and Disaster Response courses. Upon completion, students will earn ATSU-CGHS’ certificate, three FEMA certificates, and a contact-tracing certificate. 

“Understanding the connection between public health practice and emergency response is critical for anyone interested in being a part of the country’s emergency preparedness system,” said Don Altman, DDS, DHSc, EdD, MPH, MBA, MA, professor and ATSU-CGHS dean. “This new certificate in public health, emergency preparedness, and disaster response is a great way to link the two disciplines.”

The program can be completed in as little as six months. Visit ATSU-CGHS’ certificate program website to learn more or apply.

The application deadline for the first cohort is Dec. 9, 2020.

    I am interesting in taking your certificate course in emergency preparedness. I would like to know if there is a financial aid package or grant program associated with the course. I am a graduate of ATSU-CGHS. Thank you.

  2. Amanda Martinez says:

    Hi Malik,
    Since this is a certificate, there is no financial aid available, however, as an alum of ATSU, you are entitled to a 20% discount on courses for the certificate! Please reach out to with any other questions or to start an application.
