Health Policy & Management

General Information

The mission of the Department of Health Policy and Management (HPM) is to advance the health of the public by promoting an evidence-based approach to policy making related to the delivery of health care and improving public health. 

The department considers the determinants of health to be broad, beyond health care alone, and takes a social science approach to studying the many determinants of health.

Department faculty are involved in research, educational and leadership activities in these areas. Our classes combine practical skills development with theory and case studies, to equip students to take leadership positions in health policy and health care management. Students take positions in government, not-for-profit, for-profit and research organizations across the country and around the world.
