Faculty & Research

Health Policy and Management faculty are nationally recognized for their cutting-edge, policy-relevant research on the major issues affecting health management and policy in the 21st century. Whether it’s developing payment systems for long-term care, designing new health insurance products, examining and improving the value of public health services, or designing more effective health systems in both the U.S. and abroad, you will find our faculty at the forefront of exciting research that is used by policymakers and practitioners.

We recognize that high-quality research enhances effective teaching, and that high-quality teaching enhances research ideas. Thus, we view teaching and research as synergistic. All HMP faculty teach classes, and serve as academic advisors to students. Our faculty bring their research expertise to the classroom, and often hire students to work as research assistants on their projects.
