The Master of Science program in Health Services Research provides training in the scientific foundations of the multidisciplinary field of health services research. Health services research studies the interplay of social factors, health technologies, and personal behaviors affecting access to health care, the quality and cost of health care, and the quantity and quality of life. The program trains scientists who can implement and assist with the development of health services research studies, while meeting the rigors of the scientific community.
