Program Description:

Coursework and research opportunities cover health policy as it applies to the range of players in the system, including hospitals, health systems, pharmaceutical firms, government agencies, clinicians, insurance companies, managed care organizations, and entrepreneurial ventures. Since the field of health policy draws on contributions from many areas, the USP Program is interdisciplinary by nature. It requires students to analyze issues creatively by combining different approaches to policy problems. Research opportunities, similarly, cut across disciplinary lines to draw on differing kinds of expertise.
