Health Policy Programs

The Department of Health Policy and Management (HPM) has a rich history of educating individuals for careers in health policy and management since its inception in 1950. Our strengths include the areas of health system governance and management, long-term care, and pharmaceutical economics.

We prepare students in our MPH (and JD/MPH) programs to develop and advocate for public policies, create policy regulation, and work in governmental and public health sectors. Our MHA (and MHA-MBA) graduates are trained to fill professional managerial positions in health care systems, hospitals, health insurance, and other organizations. As successful health care system executives these graduates provide leadership and are skilled in the management, financing and delivery of services, technological innovations, health policy and regulatory requirements, and public health and disease prevention strategies.

Students in our research-focused MS and PHD programs develop the rigorous analytical and quantitative skills needed for careers in top academic settings, government, and industry.
