The Department of Health Research and Policy has three principal areas of scholarly interest:
- Biostatistics deals with scientific methodology in the medical sciences, emphasizing the use of statistical techniques.
- Epidemiology is the study of the distribution and determinants of illness and impairment in human populations. Epidemiology training provides analytic tools for clinical and translational research, including studies of disease etiology, prevention, and therapy.
- Health Services Research is concerned with many aspects of health policy analysis in the public and private sectors
