encompasses a range of sub-disciplines in the service of improving patient and population health effectively and efficiently. These include health economics, health policy and health services research. We support research research and provide training to graduate students.
Health policy and management is a multidisciplinary field concerned with the delivery, quality, and costs of health care for individuals and populations. Students who concentrate in health policy and management are trained in a variety of subjects including the complex structures of health care delivery in the U.S., legal and ethical foundations for health care, as well as policy processes designed to improve health care access among diverse populations.
