Master of Public Health in Health Policy and Management
In the Master of Public Health (MPH) in Health Policy and Management at Temple’s College of Public Health, you will develop competencies that are integral to the assessment, development, design, implementation, leadership and management of public health–related programs and initiatives. You will also learn to formulate governmental and organizational policy designed to improve population health and the patient experience of care and reduce the per capita cost of healthcare.
Effective, evidence-based health policy is essential to the wellbeing of people around the world. Health policies typically involve subsets of public policies that should, but do not always, serve the interests of the public. Such policies may be affected by the distribution of resources and services and influences, political or otherwise.
