The Health Policy and Management (HPM) program prepares public health professionals to work in health care organizations and federal, state, and local public health agencies. The HPM program uses an interdisciplinary approach, incorporating social, behavioral, economic, and political science approaches to increase our understanding of health services and policy to improve the health of populations. Graduates of the program are equipped with the conceptual models, analytical foundations, and practical skills necessary to solve complex health-related problems.
