Who We Are

Welcome to the Doctor of Plant Health website.

The Doctor of Plant Health program at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln is an innovative model for educating plant health practitioners. DPH is a professional program similar to a medical or veterinary program, but instead, graduates are prepared to understand and diagnose plant health issues and manage the entire plant production system. Our program provides coursework and internship experiences that will prepare you to make a difference in tomorrow’s agriculture.

Graduates of the Doctor of Plant Health program are in demand worldwide for their comprehensive knowledge and experience, resulting in 100 percent job placement.

Interested?  Contact Dr. Gary Hein, DPH program director, at ghein@unl.edu, or call 402-472-3365 for more information.
