    Health Policy, Management & Behavior


The Department of Health Policy, Management and Behavior (HPMB) prepares students to pursue planning and leadership roles in public health. Graduates become health policy analysts, program planners and evaluators, health services researchers and managers, and health promotion specialists in the private sector, government and non-profit organizations.

Through HPMB program offerings, students gain strong analytical skills, knowledge of the health care and public health system, and experiences to prepare them to analyze, develop, implement, and evaluate health policy and health-related programs.

This educational experience is enhanced through study with senior-level health practitioners and researchers who are directly involved in the formulation and implementation of health policy and management strategies.
