The Department of Public health in the Faculty of Medicine is an interdisciplinary department with two full members (i.e. European Center of Pharmaceutical Sciences & Nursing Science) and one associate member (i.e. Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute).

In addition, DPH has several other members with dual departmental affiliation, representing co-membership of the Department Clinical Research (Basel Clinical Epidemiology and Statistics, Evidence-Based Insurance Medicine, Institute of Primary Care Medicine) as well as Department of Exercise and Health Sciences.
