Graduate Program in Health Administration and Policy (GPHAP)


Breaking the boundaries of conventional thinking about health care


GPHAP trains students to be leaders in a rapidly transforming health care field, which demands interdisciplinary thinkers who work effectively in diverse teams to create models that operate across medicine, social services, community, private markets, and government programs and regulatory policy.




An Interdisciplinary Approach

The next generation of health care leaders will require not only a diverse skill set and an entrepreneurial spirit, but deep interdisciplinary training in health care systems and health equity.  GPHAP draws students out of the silos of their graduate school disciplines to connect and blend their expertise to solve the complex health care problems of our time. Schools participating in GPHAP are the Booth School of Business, Harris School of Public Policy, Law School, Pritzker School of Medicine, and the Crown  Family School of Social Work, Policy, and Practice.
