The Health Services Research, Policy & Administration (HSRPA) MS program teaches you the knowledge and skills to be a health analyst and researcher who develops the evidence that is used in research, clinical, business, research, and policy environments. You’ll examine the causes and correlations of health outcomes, as well as quality and costs in organizational and policy contexts, such as public reporting and payment policies.
