Welcome to the Department of Health Outcomes and Policy in the College of Medicine. We are a diverse multidisciplinary faculty of health outcomes researchers, health policy evaluators, economists, epidemiologists, psychologists and demographers, whose goal is to advance the scientific knowledge necessary to promote population health, improve healthcare outcomes, and develop sound public policies to improve the health of children and adults.

The department evaluates health effects of public policies, and conducts controlled field trials of preventive interventions in community and clinical settings. An area of particular focus is examining factors that contribute to disparities in health and healthcare outcomes among disadvantaged populations. The department is also the home of the Institute for Child Health Policy, which conducts innovative policy studies and intervention trials to promote the health of children, adolescents and young adults. We invite you to explore our website to learn more about the department, our faculty, current research activities, and our educational programs.
