Program Description:

The Health Sciences Integrated Program builds upon Northwestern University's Master's programs in these fields and incorporates new areas of strength in measurement and health behavior. Integration across these programs provides the flexibility for doctoral students to receive rigorous interdisciplinary training in the core content needed for population research in the 21st century. Students will have the opportunity to learn from and work with other students and faculty in these different disciplines. Each student develops an individualized course of study toward a PhD that draws on the broad and deep resources found in The Graduate School and the Feinberg School of Medicine. The aim of the HSIP is to provide a strong academic foundation for students to focus on and excel in research that addresses processes and methodologies in the clinical and population sciences. The ultimate goal of this integrated approach to Health Sciences research is to produce graduates who will be leaders in translational science that harnesses approaches and methods from multiple disciplines.
