Maternal Child Health


The Building Education, Student Involvement, and Training in Maternal and Child Health Program (BEST Program) aims to catalyze graduate training in maternal and child health at Rutgers University with a focus on providing opportunities for students from minority and underserved populations. 

The MCH training program includes four targeted objectives:

  • A Foundational Course in Maternal and Child Health (UGPH 0560);
  • An MCH Student Organization–RU-MaCH;
  • MCH Fellowships for students which provide real-life MCH learning opportunities; and
  • An MCH Faculty Workgroup that supports students and MCH curriculum and program development.
