The mission of the Health Care and Population Health Research Track is to advance the health of all population groups. This is accomplished by improving health care, advancing social progress and improving public health.

The tools we use to accomplish this mission emphasize the use of specific outcomes based on scientific studies.


In order to fulfill our mission, the faculty have established the following priorities:
  • We train highly competent practitioners, teachers, and researchers in the science of improving population health.
  • We apply scientific findings to social and health policy.
  • We advance research in the public health sciences, health services delivery, preventive medicine and public health practice.
