Research - Health Policy Program  

We believe that research experiences are essential to make application of in class training to real world health policy and public health issues. Our students benefit from interdisciplinary collaborations with shared faculty across USciences. In this way, we are able to offer a diverse spectrum of individual research opportunities in areas such as but not limited to Community Health Needs, Genomics, Health Economics, Health Management, Homelessness, Mental Health. Personalized Medicine Pharmacogenomics, Social Services and Urban Health.

Additionally, The Health Policy program supports research at  The National Center for Health Research, which is a nonprofit think tank that bridges the gaps between research, healthcare, and health policy.
