The Master of Health Science (MHS) in Health Economics and Outcomes Research is a nine-month academic program that offers students a foundation in evaluation methods necessary to promote the efficient and equitable allocation of healthcare resources in public health.  Mastering these methods enables the graduates of the MHS program to evaluate healthcare and work with stakeholders and decision makers to identify relevant regulatory policies, strategies and interventions. 

In a world where health systems are faced with constrained budgets while simultaneously trying to improve health, the skills provided by the MHS program are of increasing need. 

The MHS in Health Economics and Outcomes Research is offered by the Department of Health Policy and Management in the Bloomberg School of Public Health within Johns Hopkins University. 

Students enrolled in this program have the opportunity to take courses from several departments and from faculty with expertise in a variety of discipline-many of which are true leaders in the respective fields. Through their coursework, experience at seminars, and capstone projects, provides a multidisciplinary experience.

The MHS offers two tracks: one focused on economic evaluation and the other on outcomes research. Students will take a common core of courses, including health economics, economic evaluation, biostatistics, and epidemiology.  Each track will allow students to take additional courses to hone their skills in their respective specialty.

Graduates of this program are well positioned to pursue careers in academia, government, and industry. This program also prepares students for further doctoral training in economics and health policy.
