The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health offers fully online, part-time master's degree and certificate programs, designed for working professionals. Our Online Programs for Applied Learning (OPAL) focus on emergent industry sectors that have a resounding need for highly skilled professionals. Population health management has emerged as an important strategy for health care providers and payers. The Certificate in Population Health Management prepares students to examine and respond to both challenges and opportunities to improve health within and across populations. The program is structured to guide health care professionals seeking to transform or create sustainable models of value-driven accountable care.

  1. Identify determinants of population health that impact health outcomes in a community and apply the essentials of public health practice to design low cost interventions;
  2. Lead the formation and management of contemporary health care systems that consist of, and rely upon, diverse stakeholders in the organization and delivery of community-based models of care;
  3. Communicate effectively to constituencies both within and outside of the health system;
