Health Sciences Integrated Program

Degree Types: PhD

The Health Sciences Integrated Program (HSIP) offers doctoral student training in multiple disciplines within the health sciences. PhD students can choose to focus studies on:

  • Health and biomedical informatics
  • Health services and outcomes research
  • Healthcare quality and patient safety
  • Social sciences and health

The PhD program builds upon existing master's degree programs in these fields and incorporates new areas of strength in measurement and health behavior. Doctoral students receive rigorous interdisciplinary training in the core content needed for population research in the 21st century.

Each student develops an individualized course of study that draws on the broad and deep resources found in The Graduate School and the Feinberg School of Medicine. HSIP provides a strong academic foundation for students to excel in research that addresses processes and methodologies in the clinical and population sciences.

The ultimate goal of program is to produce graduates who will be leaders in translational science with the ability to connect approaches and methods from multiple disciplines.
