Health Policy and Management
Impact population health at a systems level.
Healthcare is a fast-paced, continually evolving field of policy, economics, finance and law. We educate both high-impact practitioners in the healthcare policy and management as well as researchers with a focus on the healthcare industry and health policy. Our students take courses in policy, economics, finance, management and law, while specializing in policy or management, or a combination of both for careers in research, healthcare delivery or management positions.
Health Policy and Management MPH Programs
Through a curriculum that covers policy analysis, strategic management, information technology, economics, disease prevention, and law and ethics, we prepare graduates for leadership roles in healthcare management positions in a range of settings, from healthcare delivery to governmental and nonprofit agencies.
Health Policy PhD Program
Health policy is an interdisciplinary field that examines the organization and financing of health systems and services, the impact of health policies on population health, and the economic, social and behavioral determinants of health. We prepare students for research careers in health policy and health services research, teaching, and public service in university, governmental and public policy settings.

Graduate Certificate in Health Management
Current students in any master’s or doctoral degree program at UC Berkeley may elect to complete the Graduate Certificate in Health Management from the Health Policy and Management Division. This comprehensive trio of toolkit courses focusing on skill-building, frameworks, and applied learning supports students in developing critical health management competencies and complements a wide range of existing degree programs. Once completed, the designation will appear on the official graduate transcript.
Concurrent Health Policy Degrees
The School of Public Health has established concurrent degree programs with other schools and departments on campus that allow students to take advantage of the unique opportunities for interdisciplinary study that Berkeley offers. In these programs, students follow a carefully designed curriculum that allows them to complete the requirements for two degrees in less time than is normally required to complete the two degrees separately.
