In the Health Management and Policy track you will develop abilities to solve healthcare problems in practical ways within sound conceptual frameworks and will study health services delivery from the distinct viewpoints of those who receive, provide, finance and regulate care.
Courses emphasize the connection between financing care and delivering care, and between developing sound policy and implementing it through good management. The curriculum includes courses on current economic, political, legal, management and financial issues that directly influence the health sector.
This option will prepare you for entry into health policy positions in federal, state or local governments, as well as administrative and management careers in private and public healthcare organizations.
