Welcome to the department of Health Services Research, Management and Policy. We are one of eleven departments in the College of Public Health and Health Professions at the University of Florida.

The department of Health Services Research, Management and Policy offers degree programs at both the master's and doctoral level. The Master of Health Administration (MHA) is an on-campus program designed to prepare individuals for management positions in the healthcare field.

The department offers the public health management and policy concentration within the University of Florida's Master of Public Health (MPH) program. The PhD in Health Services Research (HSR) is a full-time doctoral program that prepares individuals to study the healthcare system as a whole; health services research is a multidisciplinary field of inquiry that examines the organization, delivery, and financing of health services.

Our Mission

The mission of the Department of Health Services Research, Management and Policy at the University of Florida is to:

  • Prepare highly qualified and motivated students in our master's degree programs to become effective managers and leaders of health care and public health organizations.
  • Educate outstanding doctoral students to become health services researchers who contribute to the body of knowledge regarding the organization, delivery, and financing of health services.
  • Conduct research that achieves national, peer recognition for its contribution to creating new knowledge and for its value in informing health services practice and policy.
  • Serve as active participants and leaders in our University, professional, and health services communities.
