The public health doctoral network, run by the EHESP, was accredited at the end of 2008. It leans upon doctoral schools of 10 establishments, covering complementary domains (public health, law, epidemiology, social sciences, management, etc). The doctoral network allows students registered at the EHESP and at a partner doctoral school to prepare a doctoral work dealing with different aspects of public health:
- hospital management, social and welfare action and health policies
- information sciences and biostatistics
- environment and occupational health
- human, social and behavioral sciences
Moreover, for the first time in France, the doctoral network provides a track in nursing sciences and public health.
