Health Sciences Integrated PhD Program

Health Sciences Integrated PhD Program

The Health Sciences Integrated Program (HSIP) offers doctoral student training across multiple disciplines within the Health Sciences.  The PhD program builds upon existing Master's Degree programs in these fields and incorporates new areas of strength in measurement and health behavior. Integration across these programs provides the flexibility for doctoral students to receive rigorous interdisciplinary training in the core content needed for population research in the 21st century.


Translational Outcomes Science track renamed Social Sciences and Health

The Health Sciences Integrated PhD Program (HSIP) is pleased to announce that effective November 1, the Translational Outcomes Science (TOS) track has been renamed the Social Sciences and Health (SSH) track.  “We’d gotten feedback from both HSIP applicants and faculty within our program that the TOS track name didn’t fully capture the nature of the training or the expertise of the track faculty, so this was an opportunity to identify a new name for the track that better fits what we offer,” said Judy Moskowitz, PhD, Department of Medical Social Sciences and leader of HSIP’s SSH track. “The Social Sciences and Health track offers HSIP students the opportunity to learn from internationally known Northwestern social and behavioral science researchers with expertise in the measurement of patient-centered outcomes, health promotion and disease management, and mechanisms of health and disease across the lifespan. This new track name really highlights what our program offers,” said Neil Jordan, PhD, Departments of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Preventive Medicine, and HSIP Director.
