The Department of Health Policy and Management (HPM) is committed to training and inspiring the next generation of health care leaders. Our students and faculty are passionate about making the world a better place by improving health and health care. We work on compelling and important problems, from making the delivery of care safer and more efficient, to expanding health insurance coverage and eliminating disparities, to designing and improving the performance of entire health systems.
Our educational programs focus on helping students develop the critical thinking and applied problem-solving skills needed to address a wide variety of public health challenges. HPM students come from across the United States and from around the world. They are academically accomplished, enthusiastic, and engaged. All of our students have significant prior work experience and they enrich the classroom with their insights and perspectives.
We believe that additional experiences beyond the classroom are an essential part of public health education, and our department’s strong ties to leading public health policymakers and practitioners provide students with opportunities to apply classroom learning to real world, public health management, and policy problems in the US and abroad.
