Health Policy and Management
The focus of our nationally top-ranked Department of Health Policy and Management is twofold.
We train the next generation of leaders in management, policy making, and research to address the complex challenges of health-care delivery and produce cutting-edge research to contribute to the improvement of health-related quality of life, domestically and globally.
In both roles, we are committed to ensuring that all people, irrespective of gender, race, ethnicity or economic resources, have access to high-quality health-care services.
