Department of Health Policy and Management

The Department of Health Policy and Management aims to improve population health by enhancing access to care, increasing efficiencies across health systems, and eliminating disparities.

Our faculty approach these aims by providing leadership and expertise in support of healthcare system innovation, conducting analyses of the policies and economic realities underpinning healthcare systems, and engaging in political advocacy. Faculty researchers are accomplished in a broad range of domains including global health care organization and delivery systems, healthy aging across the life span, economics and global health, HIV policy and practice, and substance use policy.

In keeping with our belief in using applied public health practice arenas, students have opportunities to work in real-world policy-making organizations and research institutions to hone their skills to become leaders of tomorrow.
