Population Health Science

Population Health Science is an emerging interdisciplinary discipline that combines social, medical science, demography, epidemiology, and economics to quantify the conditions that shape health.

Mission 

The mission of the Department of Population Health Science in the Bower School of Population Health is to educate and train future population health scientists uniquely equipped to conduct impact-driven research and to prepare clinical professionals to deliver population-oriented patient care in consideration of cost, quality and efficacy.

History

In April 2016, the Department of Population Health Science was instituted under the new Bower School of Population Health to educate future researchers and clinicians in the science of population health. The goal of the degree programs in the Department of Population Health Science is to train future population health scientists with the breath of methodological and interdisciplinary expertise to address the full range of factors that influence health and disease and to prepare clinicians equipped to deliver population-oriented care.
