Health Law, Policy & Management

Understanding and improving public health

In pursuit of public health and social justice.

As a national leader in training healthcare policymakers and managers, the Department of Health Law, Policy & Management (HLPM) helps students develop the expertise and tools they’ll need to meet the challenges facing today’s healthcare system. We offer rigorous, competency-based educational programs that include the country’s largest concentration of health law faculty and courses.

At the heart of HLPM lies an exceptional, multidisciplinary faculty that specializes in engaging teaching methods; active learning; and a wide variety of innovative research projects, including analyzing current Medicare and Medicaid policy, studying drug policy and regulation, and evaluating racial and ethnic variations in patient care.

HLPM faculty members are widely published experts in health law, bioethics, human rights, policy, health services, and economics and implementation science, and address real-world problems by serving as members of state, national, and international committees and task forces. They have received both national and global recognition.
