PA 863 Health Systems and Policy

Routinely offered: This course is offered every year.

This course offers a survey of health care and public health systems, with a particular focus on factors and policies that influence health equity and disparities in the United States. Students will learn concepts and frameworks important to contemporary and emerging debates in public policy and health. Working independently and in teams, students will work through cases and periodic “innovation sprints,” applying practical strategies to understand and communicate about problems and policy solutions that can emerge within complex, dynamic systems.
