About the Program

The Master of Science in Health Services Research and Policy is a 37-credit, three-semester course of study designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to conduct high quality health services research and policy analysis.

We meet this goal by providing students with a multi-disciplinary foundation in the fundamental elements of health services research including economics, epidemiology, health policy, biostatistics, decision analysis, organizational theory, psychology, and comparative effectiveness analysis.

Students completing the program will be well prepared to take positions in a wide variety of private and public institutions engaged in health care management, health services research, or health policy work.
