Compassionate leaders for complex challenges
The Gillings School's top-ranked Department of Health Policy and Management trains 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. We prepare our students to improve population health both domestically and globally. We are committed to ensuring that all people — irrespective of age, gender, race, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, geographic origin, religion or economic resources — have access to high-quality health care services.
