Mission & Vision
To improve our nation’s disaster health readiness through science and education.
The National Center for Disaster Medicine and Public Health (NCDMPH) is the nation’s academic center of excellence leading domestic and international disaster health education and research efforts. In collaboration with partners we create and translate science and education to improve readiness.
The NCDMPH was established in 2008 by Homeland Security Presidential Directive 21 (HSPD-21), which calls for the Center to be an "academic center of excellence in disaster medicine and public health."
By establishing standardizations of core curricula and competencies in disaster medicine and public health education, the NCDMPH will better prepare the nation to respond to natural and man-made disasters or other catastrophic public health events.
Because of the source of its creation, the NCDMPH is uniquely authorized to communicate and coordinate this learning strategy to state, local and tribal entities, academia and the private sector.
