Population Health

In the U.S. and across the globe, healthcare is facing challenges such as rising costs, the increased needs of an aging population, and less-than-optimal patient outcomes. Population health aims to address these problems, focusing on preventing illness, injuries, disabilities, and chronic diseases; reducing disparities in healthcare access; and promoting longevity within specific, predetermined groups of people through social outreach and planned interventions.

This specialization allows you to explore the foundations of population health—including new community medicine structures, socioeconomic determinants of disease, data analytics, and applying preventive interventions. Acquire the skills you need to educate populations and help protect the health of our community populations.
