The Master of Applied Science in Population Health Management and the Graduate Certificate in Population Health Management are fully online graduate programs offered by the No. 1 school of public health, focused on understanding and establishing population health
management systems. The programs are targeted towards clinicians and managers that are actively engaged in the transformation of hospital and health systems to value-based, population-focused care delivery.
There is a high demand for healthcare administration and management jobs and the field is projecting growth. With a healthy 16.9 percent growth rate, well above the national average of 6.5 percent in other sectors, demand for medical and health services managers and administrators is high.
Within this sector, population health management has emerged as an important strategy for healthcare providers and payers, paving the way for new or evolving roles. Population health management
strategies are used by clinicians and managers striving to transform their hospital and health systems into value-based, population-focused care delivery organizations, which has led to the development of newer roles such as Vice President of Population Health, Director of Health Care Integration, Director of Community Health Operations, and Population Health Initiatives Manager. These and related career paths are macro systems focused, looking beyond the four walls of the traditional hospital or health system.
