Health Services Administration MPH

Learn how to assess population health needs, formulate policies and interventions, and assure the effective­ness of community programs and services.

One of the biggest issues that the U.S. healthcare system is facing today is how to control healthcare costs while improving population health and maintaining meaningful and efficient patient-provider interactions. 

In response to this demand, we developed a multidisciplinary program that combines innovative research with didactic training in core public health concepts, policy formulation, community health assessment, program intervention and urban planning design, behavioral economics and financial incentives, implementation and dissemination research, program management and evaluation, and other core health services competencies.

Career Opportunities

As a public health administrator, you will be involved with program planning, implementation, participation, evaluation, collaborations and partner­ships, policy development, and public and professional communication.

You will be prepared to work in a variety of fields, including:

  • All branches and levels of government
  • Health care organizations, hospitals, health maintenance organizations and industrial medical care offices
  • Nonprofit organizations such as the American Heart Association
  • Public health advocacy and other community-based organizations
