The Graduate Certificate in Population Health prepares working healthcare professionals to meet the current and future healthcare needs of different population groups, with a focus on using data and proven theories and practices to address health disparities.
You’ll work to solve healthcare problems and implement quality initiatives through the study of health analytics, quality improvement, community partnerships, and healthcare delivery methods.
