Health Services Research, Policy & Administration MS




The Master of Science in Health Services Research, Policy & Administration (MS-HSRPA) program focuses on the research and analytic methods underlying evidence-based decision making. Students gain knowledge and skills in managing health-related data, such as electronic medical records, surveys, and health care claims.
The MS includes two tracks:

  • Plan A: Outcomes Research, a two-year program that focuses on developing the skills necessary for participating in research environments.
  • Plan B: Health Intelligence & Analytics, a one-year program (available online and in-person) that provides you the skills and knowledge to analyze and answer health services related questions from practitioners and researchers.
