Certificates & Programs
Global health is exciting, growing, diverse, and competitive. The Global Health in Health Management & Policy Program prepares a small number of students to work in global health policy and management, either in the United States or abroad. The HMP global health degree is pursued by a small set of students within the larger MHSA and MPH programs, chosen at admission, who are training to apply their health management and policy skills in a range of international contexts.
Through the Graduate Certificate in Health Informatics (GCHI) curriculum, students are introduced to the health informatics field and fundamentals in information science and public health. Completion of the GCHI requires 18 credit hours of coursework across the School of Information and School of Public Health. Only students who are currently enrolled, or who will be enrolled in the fall, in a graduate-level program at the U-M's Ann Arbor campus, may apply to the GCHI program.
The department offers a wide array of postdoctoral training opportunities. Having scholars working on health-related topics from a variety of disciplines enhances the department's intellectual environment. The postdoctoral scholars offer seminars exploring their cutting-edge research and participate with faculty and students in discussing the latest healthcare and health policy issues.
