The Quality of our Students and the Success of our Graduates

“… Thank you for all of your work in making the major the best, in my mind, at the university. I can’t tell you how much the health system knowledge, financial/economic/technology skills, and leadership/teamwork courses have contributed to my success in the first 6 months at [my organization]. The conversations I can have with my coworkers and clients are leaps and bounds above what is expected of an Analyst, and that is because I developed a solid framework to understand our health system during my time in HPM.”
– BSPH 2017 Graduate
