Mailman School of Public Health, Department of Health Policy and Management
Department of Health Policy & Management
The Department’s mission is to advance theory and practice that improve the public’s health, prevent disease, and strengthen the healthcare system and its component organizations. This mission is fulfilled through research, education, and service that address the development and implementation of health policy and the administrative functioning of health systems and services. We believe that health policy and healthcare management are interdependent and our research and education programs are informed by this view.
We approach health policy and management issues, including access to healthcare, organization and administration of health care delivery, financing, and quality of care, from a range of disciplinary and professional perspectives, in historical and social context, and informed by empirical evidence. Our full-time Management Track and the Executive MPH Program are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation Healthcare Management Education (CAHME).
