In today’s complex and rapidly changing health care environment, the field of health systems, management and policy is essential. Faced with making the delivery of care safer and more efficient, expanding health insurance coverage and improving the performance of entire health systems, MPH students in Health Systems, Management & Policy (HSMP) are addressing America’s most pressing health concerns.
As a student in HSMP, you’ll engage with faculty working on sophisticated research in mental health, health insurance, health outcomes, substance abuse treatment and health economics. Faculty research is funded by agencies such as the National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
Leave the program prepared to meet the challenging demands in health care, public health and health policy environments. Work as policy analysts, health care managers and health services researchers in hospitals, managed care organizations, government agencies and research institutions.
