The mission of the Doctor of Plant Health Program at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln is to produce plant practitioners with broad expertise and experience across the various disciplines that impact plant health and plant management. These plant practitioners (plant doctors) will integrate from across this expertise to diagnose and solve plant health problems and to develop integrated plant and pest management systems that maximize the system’s economic, environmental, and social sustainability.
This academic year (2011-12) the Doctor of Plant Health program has added five new students to the roster. Since January 2010, enrollment has grown from one student that first semester to eleven students currently taking classes. One of the huge benefits now available for the graduate students was the completion of the DPH Graduate Student Center located
in Plant Sciences Hall. This summer students will be undertaking internships in with seed/chemical companies, horticultural industry, and university research and extension programs. For more information on the Doctor of Plant Health Program see the website: www.dph.unl.edu or call 402-472-3365.
