The MS is a one-year degree program that offers courses that improve analytical skills, build knowledge of public health and teach about the newest methods in the design, financing and implementation of health system changes. Students in the MS programs will learn how a health system is designed and will acquire the tools that they need to make significant policy changes in health systems around the world. Graduates of the MS program will have a robust toolset that they will be able to use to problem solve and understand many complex issues related to health policy, population health, and health systems. The program focuses not only on building useful skills to assist in high level policy design and decision making but also how to implement these policies appropriately on the ground. The required courses in the MS Program focus on specific skills that are needed to make sound health policy decisions. However, there is enough flexibility in the course work to allow individual students to focus their expertise in policy, management or development. Graduates of the MS Program follow many different career paths. Some of our graduates have returned to their home countries equipped with the necessary skills in order to move into high level positions within their Ministries of Health or other government posts. Other graduates have become key players in many influential organizations and agencies throughout the globe (USAID, World Health Organization, the World Bank, Mercy Corps and other prominent NGOs). The MS Program will also prepare those students who want to apply for further study in a PhD Program. Heller also offers a dual degree between the MS Program and the MBA program and another between the MS program and the MA program.
