By earning your Health Systems Management and Policy graduate degree at the OHSU-PSU SPH, you will become part of a dynamic culture that fuses the energy of two institutions: a world-class academic health center (OHSU), and a community-engaged research university (PSU) with nationally renowned graduate programs in social work, public administration, urban affairs, and other disciplines.
That combination yields creative, interdisciplinary partnerships that give rise to new models for Health Systems Management and Policy. It also allows you to get involved in major research projects and reform initiatives while interacting with stakeholders from throughout the health system.
Graduates of the Health Systems Management and Policy program from Portland State University have an outstanding record of career achievement, with high-profile leadership jobs in government, academia, the nonprofit sector, the health services industry, insurance, research, and other fields.
With the MPH in Health Management and Policy/Master in Social Work Dual Degree, you will gain perspectives on eliminating systems of oppression, racial and ethnic discrimination, economic inequities, and advancing programs for social and political justice.
The Health Systems and Policy doctoral program provides outstanding academic training to support careers in education and research, as university faculty or in applied policy positions. You can also apply your Health Systems and Policy Ph.D. to pursue executive leadership roles in government, nonprofit, and private-sector health organizations, including health systems and insurance companies.
