Through these offerings, HORP researchers have an opportunity to share their expertise in survey research and health politics with graduate students. Likewise, doctoral students from the Health Policy Ph.D. Program who study health policy and politics work with the HORP team and develop skills that will enable them to pursue successful careers.
