Future Career

Healthcare professionals are becoming increasingly interested in health services research, which focuses on how personal behaviors, societal factors, organizational structures and health technologies affect access to medical care, quality and cost of care, and health outcomes at the population level (rather than at the level of the individual patient). Health services research is interdisciplinary by nature, involving both healthcare providers and public health professionals, including health economists and epidemiologists.
