Graduate Program in Health Management


Faculty, Lecturers, and Practitioners


The only way to keep ahead of the dynamic changes in the health services and technology markets is to recruit faculty members who are not only among the best researchers in the world, but also whose research have proven to be keenly attuned to business applications. The program sees research as an integral component of its health management mission. Together with the School of Public Health (SPH), program faculty actively engage in applied research that both broadens the educational experience and expands the state of knowledge about how the health services system works.
