Health services and outcomes research examines the cost, quality, and accessibility of health care and plays a crucial role in improving clinical practice, informing health policy, reducing disparities and costs, and shaping the future organization and delivery of healthcare. For physicians who want to pursue academic careers, the MS in HSOR is an alternative to other degrees that focus on the translational investigation of medical treatments and services (MSCI) and on population health research and programmatic interventions (MPH).
- The Master of Science provides essential methods and topical instruction for conducting independent health services research.
- Two Graduate Certificates supplement other formal training for individuals who do not wish to pursue a full MS degree.
