The Master of Public Health (MPH) program in Health Policy & Systems Management (HPSM) is concerned with personal and population health improvement through planning, implementation and operation of systemic, effective and community responsive programs and organizations.

The HPSM program prepares students for managerial, consulting, and leadership roles in public health and health care organizations. Pre-professional and professional students are prepared for these roles through the study and application of the principles of health systems management with a special focus on the quality and cost effectiveness of the care they provide and on the information systems that support them.

Program core courses also prepare students to pursue careers to develop and advocate for health policies to achieve cost-effective delivery of health services as well as to ensure desired health outcomes.
