MPA in Health Policy and Management (MPA/HPAM)

Ranked #8 in Health Policy and Management by U.S. News and World Report, the success of our MPA/HPAM program is based on rigorous academics that link theory and practice.

Students complete coursework in health services management, financial decision making, policy analysis, health economics and statistical analysis among other topics. They take additional courses to specialize in international health, health finance, healthcare management and policy. Most students maximize their academic experience by taking on degree relevant internships (and other professional positions) while enrolled in the program.
