Our strong interdisciplinary focus means you’ll also learn to analyze health policy issues through many lenses, including regulatory, economics, sociology, epidemiology, and statistics. The result? You’ll know how to work effectively with the myriad professionals whose input is critical to effecting change and realizing progress.
