The Health Policy program at Yale University's goal is to empower graduates to become effective agents of change in the policy environments that shape health and health care – to grow into being leaders. This calls for fostering student’s passions, creativity and capabilities as social/policy entrepreneurs.

Learning outcomes

To this end, the program is designed around a small core of required courses, allowing students to shape their own distinctive programs of learning – particularly during their second year of study. Students design their own sequence of courses in health policy, and may specialize in particular substantive areas (e.g., addiction, health economics, vulnerable populations, global health or consumer decision making). 

Students bring together these distinct trajectories in an integrative capstone seminar in their final semester.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Biostatistics in Public Health
  • Social Justice and Health Equity 
  • Foundations of Epidemiology for Public Health
  • Health Policy and Health Care Systems 
  • Major Health Threats: Determinants and Solutions
