Health Policy

The Health Policy pathway is comprised of two streams – Health Policy and Health Disparities. For students who want a general exposure to health policy issues, the Health Policy stream includes a variety of topics ranging from aging to genomics. In the Health Disparities stream, students will explore inequities within the health system and the relationship between health and poverty. A sampling of past internships in these areas is included – for a full listing, visit the Sanford Career Services Office.
