Morris Weinberger, PhD, Distinguished Professor and Chair

As one of the top-ranked Departments of Health Policy and Management in the nation, we are dedicated to making an impact locally and globally through our leadership, research, scholarship, service and diversity.

For more than 80 years, our faculty and students have been embracing and advancing these concepts to develop innovative leaders and effective, timely solutions that address the world’s most pressing health policy and health management challenges.

Our faculty members are leaders in their fields with real-world experience and track records of research and teaching excellence and success.

Our students are recognized as strategic thinkers who are consistently among the winners at national CASE competitions, co-authors of papers in top-tier referred journals and innovators in research and practice. Upon graduation they are sought-after by top companies, universities, leading non-profit organizations and government agencies.

At no time in our history has the need for effective, highly-trained health policy and management professionals been greater.

For prospective and current students pursuing the diverse opportunities within our field, I can’t think of a more exciting, challenging or rewarding place for them to be right now than with our Department of Health Policy and Management here at UNC’s Gillings School of Global Public Health!
