The Department of Health Policy and Management is pleased to offer a concentration within the newly revised, School-wide part-time DrPH program.  The new program, which will begin in June 2017, is built around a set of common competencies that all students entering the program will be expected to achieve.  The competencies focus in particular on leadership, analytical skills and communication, as well as policy, management, ethics, program design and evaluation. Many of these core competencies will be taught through an integrated sequence of problem-based learning classes that address recent public health challenges and provide students with opportunities to apply skills in a close to real life setting.

The new program is intended primarily for part-time students; students who wish to enroll on a full-time basis may be admitted on a case-by-case basis.  Students will take coursework through on-line and compressed institute offerings, culminating with a written dissertation.  The program requires successful completion of a minimum of 64 term credits and for some students, may be completed within four years, although a maximum of nine years is permitted.

Within the Health Policy and Management concentration, three tracks are available:

These tracks provide specialized areas of focus for both coursework as well as the dissertation.

With the launch of any program redesign, there are bound to be many questions.  We strongly encourage applicants to review all of the information on this site, including the "Frequently Asked Questions" section below.  Further questions should be directed to
