The Harvard PhD in Health Policy, awarded by the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, is a collaborative program among six Harvard University faculties: Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Harvard Business School, Harvard Kennedy School, Harvard Law School, Harvard Medical School, and Harvard School of Public Health.
While the program is interdisciplinary in nature, students specialize in one of six concentrations: decision sciences, economics, ethics, evaluative science and statistics, management, or political analysis.
Approximately 125 faculty members from schools within the University are involved with the program, and students are free to take classes throughout the University. A hallmark of the program is the accessibility of faculty members to students and the commitment of faculty to students enrolled in the program.
The program started in 1992, and there are 170 graduates and 65 students currently enrolled.
