The BSPH serves as a hub for Public Health research and continuing education in the Berlin- Brandenburg Region. It offers a variety of master's programs in a graduate (consecutive) and continuing education (executive) format. The educational mission is to train young scientists to tackle the challenges of population health in the 21st century. Each of the partner institutions offers undergraduate (Bachelor) programs that qualify for the joint consecutive Master of Science in Public Health degree program. It is also possible to earn doctorate degrees in the public health field through the BSPH partners. 

Classes in the public health masters programs take place at the Charité Campus Virchow Klinikum (CVK), Charité Campus Mitte (CCM), and at TU Berlin. Enrollment (matriculation) is at the CharitéUniversitätsmedizin Berlin.

The BSPH is governed by a supervisory council and managed by a board of directors consisting of representatives from each of the three partner institutions. A scientific advisory board provides outside council. The BSPH administrative office is housed at the Institute of Public Health (IPH), Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin.
