Health Care Policy
The focus of the concentration in Health Care Policy is on the institutions for financing and delivering medical care. Students study a variety of systems for providing medical care, the social and economic factors that shape those systems, the determinants and consequences of health care policies, and the special problems of evaluating policies intended to alleviate human suffering and to extend life.
Below is a list of suggested courses. The list includes classes that students have taken in the past to complete this particular concentration, as well as additional classes that may be considered toward this topic. Students may choose to take other courses, though all concentration courses must be discussed with and approved by the faculty adviser whether or not they are on the suggested list. Students may also propose directed reading, Overseas Studies (BOSP), and Bing Stanford in Washington (BSIW) courses.
Students may also want to review courses listed in the graduate Health Care Policy Concentration.
